Erica Enriquez

Writer

I'm a Sydney-based writer covering everything from travel, lifestyle, entertainment and anything in between. When I'm not writing, I'm still writing, developing copy and content for websites and marketing collateral.

You can also find me blogging about all the amazing people and experiences that make up Sydney at www.mylocalworld.com.au

Need more info? I'm a voracious eater. A somewhat successful drinker. An avid TV watcher. A nerdy film lover. A Tee Vee Snacks devourer.

I support pro-social causes involving cultural engagement (I count travelling as one of them), and work towards my own development so I can help develop others.

** Disclaimer: Successful Oscar-nominated supermodel and world-class scientist are not terms widely associated with me.
