Never one to let life (or finances) get in the way of a good adventure – or a good story – my life has been filled with both. From summers spent hitchhiking around Europe while doing an East Asian Studies degree, going on epic trips as a travel writer and round-the-world travel agent, working in disaster relief, and managing a hostel in Cambodia, I’ve been there and done it.

As well as being a writer and personal essayist with a focus on travel, sustainable living, and finding the magic in the every day, I also run storytelling, journalling, and creative writing workshops and offer one-on-one creative mentoring, creative business support, and bucket-list trip planning.
