Features Writer

I am a freelance features writer currently based in Switzerland. Specialising in travel, I also write on topics including fashion, people and current affairs. I write for numerous regional and national magazines in Great Britain and Switzerland, both in print and online.

I started my career in an editorial office (Swiss News, the international magazine of Switzerland) and have also done stints at The Arran Banner and Yorkshire Living. I also do digital copywriting (Kazu Huggler and the Three Cranes Association) and proofreading (Native Speakers), and am competent in CMS, social media, and Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
