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, CNN and CNBC to Vogue, Australian Geographic, Jetstar and everything in between.
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.
