About Me

Image by Mikaela Jade.

As a writer with over 10 years' professional experience, I can help you convey your business' message to your audience in a way that is simple and digestible, while being informative and engaging.

I began my career as a journalist, first as a freelance writer for local magazines while studying for my degree in English, then, after graduating with honours, I became a full-time editorial assistant at a luxury lifestyle magazine, before progressing to content writer, then deputy editor at a national hair and beauty title.

Following this, I decided to take the path to become a full-time freelance writer. Since 2017, I have worked with independent businesses, agencies and influencers to create content that captivates their audiences.

Why employ me and not ChatGPT?

I believe we have a moral obligation to keep a human element to business. Your audience is human, so what better way to connect with them than with a human writer? I can write (good) humour; I can make obscure references to nineties pop culture; I can talk about an experience or product in a way that elicits a visceral response from the reader, allowing them to connect with your brand in a way that can't yet be facilitated by AI.

I'm also a brand geek. This means that, when we work together, I become a fan of your brand. From the ins and outs of your audience, tone, style, genre, to graphic elements such as the use of imagery, typography and colour palette, I commit to understanding your branding just as well as you do. This helps me tailor my writing style to fit your business.


I have worked with a number of different content management systems in a range of formats. The CMSs I have experience with include Wordpress, Blogger, Webflow and Squarespace. I also have experience with Substack, Mailchimp, Shopify, Podio, Trello, Later, and a range of other platforms. I can also learn new software quickly, and adapt to your business' needs.

I have experience writing B2C as well as B2B, in the sectors of: fashion, beauty, lifestyle, travel, pet care, horticulture, psychology, gynaecology, rheumatology, recruitment and human resources.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

I hope we can work together!

Effective Ways to Make Money While Travelling

A life of constant travel can seem like a pipe dream to many, yet it's entirely possible for savvy globetrotters to fund their wanderlust. The advent of digital technology has made it easier to earn an income from virtually anywhere in the world. Here, I'll explore some of the most effective ways to make money while travelling.


One of the most lucrative ways to fund your travels is by offering your professional expertise as a consultant. A consultant is a professional who provides expert advice in a specific field such as business, education, marketing, technology, and more. If you've accumulated considerable knowledge and experience in a particular industry, then consultancy can be your golden ticket.

Thanks to technology, you can hold meetings, create and deliver strategic documents, and maintain client relationships from anywhere. You can set up your own website and invest in payment processing for your consulting firm, and you’re just about ready to go. Bear in mind, however, that successful consultancy requires a high degree of organisation and excellent time management skills. You may be lounging by a pool in Bali, but your clients will still expect top-notch, timely service.

Freelance work

The gig economy has revolutionised the world of work, and travel enthusiasts are amongst those reaping the benefits. Websites such as Upwork, Fiverr, and Freelancer provide platforms where you can offer services ranging from graphic design, content writing, and programming to translation services. The beauty of freelancing is its flexibility; you choose your projects and work on your own schedule.

Travel blogging or vlogging

If you have a passion for storytelling, consider travel blogging or vlogging. By sharing your travel experiences and tips online, you can make money through advertising, sponsorships, and affiliate marketing. Success won't come overnight - building a substantial following takes time, effort, and consistent, engaging content. However, once established, it can be a rewarding way to fund your adventures.

Teaching English

Fluent in English? You've got a marketable skill. Teaching English as a second language is an in-demand job worldwide. With the right certifications (like TEFL or TESOL), you can find employment in numerous countries. Alternatively, online platforms allow you to teach English remotely, offering even more flexibility.

Remote work

Remote work is on the rise, with many companies embracing the idea of employees working from wherever they please. If your current role's responsibilities can be performed remotely, consider proposing a remote work arrangement to your employer.

Stock photography

If you have a knack for capturing striking images, selling stock photography might be an excellent option. Websites like Shutterstock and Getty Images enable anyone who is good with a camera to upload their images for sale. You'll be exploring scenic spots and capturing beautiful moments anyway - why not get paid for it?

Online tutoring

If you possess knowledge in a particular subject area, online tutoring could be a viable income source. You can offer your services to students worldwide via video chat. Websites like and Chegg Tutors make it easy to connect with students in need of tutoring.

Renting your home

If you own property, consider renting it out while you're travelling. Services like Airbnb allow you to list your property for short-term rentals. This can provide a significant income, especially if your home is in a sought-after location.

Online coaching

If you've got experience and skills in areas like fitness, nutrition, life coaching, or business, offering online coaching services can be a profitable venture. Online platforms like Zoom or Skype make it easy to conduct one-on-one sessions or group workshops from anywhere in the world.

E-commerce business

Starting an e-commerce store is another way to make money while travelling. You could sell handmade crafts, digital products, or drop-ship products from suppliers. E-commerce platforms like Shopify, Etsy, or WooCommerce make it easy to set up your online shop.

Virtual assistant

Working as a virtual assistant involves providing administrative support to businesses or entrepreneurs from a remote location. Tasks could include managing emails, scheduling appointments, social media management, and more. Websites like Zirtual and Belay provide platforms for finding such roles.

Travelling the world doesn't necessarily mean taking a career break. By leveraging your skills and the power of the internet, you can maintain a steady income stream wherever your journey takes you. Don’t forget, it's crucial to stay organised, maintain a strong work ethic, and ensure you have a reliable internet connection. By blending work and travel, you can experience the adventure of a lifetime and make a living at the same time. Safe travels and happy earning!
