Inspiring words and images, new ventures, project management
I am a freelance writer, photographer and project manager based in London. My topics are travel, east London and community.
Key skills are writing, photography, initiating projects, project management, editing and interviewing.
I am a winner of Vogue's annual writing contest, and the Independent on Sunday travel writing competition. I worked on the staff at Rough Guides for eight years, becoming a managing editor, and went freelance to focus on my own writing and photography.
Since then I've travelled the world for Rough Guides and Lonely Planet, worked for three consecutive years at the Edinburgh Film Festival becoming their senior photographer, produced and published the first guide to Hackney with a print run in the tens of thousands, initiated a successful community food blog, Eat Hackney, and created a fundraising cookbook based on the blog.
I work for design and editorial agencies on promotional travel and lifestyle campaigns, and am available for commissions.
