I'm a freelance travel writer & editor 
based in London, specialising in Japan.

I am available for freelance copywriting and editing projects. 
I have 20 years' experience writing and editing content for publications including Condé Nast Traveller, Vanity Fair, Tatler, House & Garden, The Telegraph, The Times and Mail on Sunday. 


How can I help?

Editorial content

If you're looking for original, authoritative and clean content on Japan,
luxury cruise travel and/or travelling with children, I'd be delighted to assist.
I have longstanding contacts and experience in these areas and can provide fresh ideas or work to an existing brief for print or online.  

& copy editing

I'm an experienced commissioning and copy editor. I have launched and edited luxury cruise travel sections for Tatler and House & Garden magazines, as well as a travel supplement for House & Garden. I've also edited content for the Tatler Schools Guide and Tatler Watches & Jewellery.  


I am experienced in working to commercial briefs or developing them for print, online or social media. My clients include Condé Nast Traveller,
Condé Nast Digital, Wondertrunk & Co and Japan House London.
