I am an international journalist, editor, author and photographer. My focus is on profile pieces, travel, hotels, luxury and long-form features.
I have written a book for The Guardian; written for The Sunday Times, CNN Travel, The Telegraph, The Times, USA Today, The Atlantic, The Independent, The Peak (a South China Morning Post outlet), Hello!, Emirates Woman, Business Traveller Middle East, World Travel Guide, Times Higher Education, City Metric (a New Statesman publication), and more; managed the media presence for global corporate accounts; and worked with companies to create written content.
Most recently I was based in Dubai, where I managed and edited Jumeirah, a global luxury magazine. As editor, I organised the entire direction of the magazine; wrote and commissioned in-depth features; travelled internationally to secure top stories and arrange exclusive photoshoots; and worked closely with Jumeirah Group to ensure the magazine stayed on-brand. I transitioned the magazine into a monthly title and helped expand its presence globally.
If we want to chat academics, I graduated with an MA – Cantab from Cambridge University on the competitive Davies-Jackson Scholarship (given to an American student each year, based strongly on writing). I double majored at Creighton University, obtaining a BA in journalism and and BA in political science (focus on international relations) along with a French minor. I graduated Summa Cum Laude. While studying, I interned at US Strategic Command (DoD) conducting research.
My full CV is available on request, or you can visit my LinkedIn profile.
In my own time, I manage the Davies-Jackson alumni communications. I have also been elected into the St. John’s College Society where I help create events for the alumni community. Finally, when I’m not working or travelling, I tend to enjoy all things health and fitness.
