Freelance Writer

Location icon Australia

I am a freelance travel and lifestyle writer. My specialty is South East Asia, having relocated from eight years in Singapore and Bali, now residing in Sydney.

My writing interests are broad and have encompassed travelling with kids, wellness and healing practices, art, food, celebrity, the weird and wonderful, guides/listings, also places of interest (UNESCO).

I am a self-declared Bali expert of local/ex-pat insights and have written a number of family guides.

I am available and open to branded content writing or features writing in a freelance, part-time, or full-time capacity.

When I'm not writing about my adventures, I find myself passionately observing people doing good deeds.
