Michael Cullen

Freelance Travel & Food Writer, Travel Photographer

Thailand-based Aussie Michael Cullen's first career saw him working in hospitality from vice royal households to boutique and big brand hotels across Australia. New assignments and challenges were welcomed with open arms and he takes that same enthusiasm and expertise for hospitality into his freelance travel writing. Asia always beckoned, be that backpacking from Hong Kong into Southern China's Guangzhou, a north-to-south honeymoon tour of Vietnam (well before mass tourism), Lombok touring, Cambodian explorations, or boating around the little-visited Andaman Islands of India. Looking for further adventures, Michael moved to Thailand full-time in 2015. His fascination with Asia prompts deeper dives into each destination's culture, history and colour. He also writes insightfully about hotels, wining and dining, wellness, sustainable and eco-friendly travel, and community-based tourism. Michael is a member of TravMedia, and IFWTWA (International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association). You can see what he's posting at: Michael welcomes freelance commissions related to destinations and story ideas for his SE Asian neighbourhood.

Amy Bartlett

Editor / Writer

A 20 year veteran of Marketing, Media, and Ministry, Amy Bartlett has built a career on finding and delivering the story -- especially the story of God in contemporary society. Graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and serving as an editor for Guideposts in New York City, Bartlett relocated to her home state of California serving independent clients for nearly a decade (e.g., Rhapsody [now Napster], Purpose Driven Publishing, KLOVE/Air1, Barbour Books, etc.), and directing children’s arts education and drama therapy programs for North Coast Repertory Theater. In 2008, Bartlett focused efforts exclusively in Marketing and Advisory Management for San Diego’s New Venture Christian Fellowship (continuing through early 2020 as adjunct/consultant), and served 4+ years as Marketing & Digital Communications Director for Jessup University in Northern California. Having now settled in the Southeast (Hilton Head / Savannah area), Bartlett recently returned to writing / editing full time, and maintains "multi-passionate" pursuits in the Arts, including music and photography. Of these varied outlets, Bartlett states, “It’s impossible to pick a favorite format, but it’s impossible not to focus on a single Reason. My job is to hold a microphone to whatever the language, tool, or project, directly or indirectly fulfilling a modern day translation of the Great Commission, communicating through all things, Jesus.” For contact, more info, and "beyond writing," visit
