I am a journalist, travel writer, copywriter and writing coach. I’ve been published in major magazines and newspapers around the world, particularly in my home country of Australia, where I write weekly for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspapers. My work has been published everywhere from the ABC to Vogue.
A perpetual traveller, I am a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers. I am a family travel writing expert and my family travel writing appears in many major magazines and online publications. I’m also the founder of Babies Who Travel and have built a large Facebook community on family travel – Kids Who Travel.
Each time I (temporarily) hang up my travelling boots, I step into my role as director of a boutique copywriting business, The Comms Collective, whose services are snapped up government bodies and Australian businesses. Through The Comms Collective I also deliver tailored writing trainings to help groups of employees radically improve their writing skills. Plus, I help CEOs, entrepreneurs, employees and others nail their next interview via Media Bootcamp, the media training company I run with fellow journalist Ginger Gorman.
As it turns out, good writers are often good talkers. I often talk travel on ABC Radio (Evenings) or am interviewed on radio or by podcasters about travel with children. Fancy a listen? Try this: talking travel with young kids on ABC radio or this interview, also on ABC radio about the ins and outs of life as a travel writer. For podcasts, you might enjoy this chat with on this episode of ABC’s Babytalk on the good, the bad and the ugly of travel with a baby. Plenty more on this Press page.
I am usually found in Sydney, Canberra or on the road with my five-year-old son in tow.
