ABOUT ME

British-born and raised and now living in Amsterdam for more than 6 years, I am an experienced writer specialising in yachting and travel. Graduating with a 1st Class degree in English Literature in 2012, I spent two years travelling while collaborating with various travel projects. I entered the world of yachting with a position as a writer at SuperYacht Times in Amsterdam in 2014. Graduating to the position of Editor within just two years, I went on to manage the creation of the bi-monthly SuperYacht Times newspaper. After almost five-years, in 2018 I decided it was time to embark on a new challenge as a freelance writer. Today, I work regularly with companies all over the world to meet their content needs, as well as contribute editorial projects to several international publications.
