About me

I'm an Australian writer, editor and content creator living in Barcelona, Spain.

Specialising in travel articles on culture and adventure in Iceland, my writing strikes a balance between information and entertainment, always aiming to amuse my readers through pithy and evocative paragraphs. I have successfully published articles in magazines and websites across Australia, Iceland, the USA and Europe. I'm currently updating the award-winning Bradt Travel Guide to Iceland, and will be authoring the new title 'Pocket Precincts - Reykjavik' by Hardie Grant Travel.

At the end of 2014 I swapped out the beautiful Australian beaches to live in Spain for a year, before giving up the sunshine to move on to the frozen rock that is Iceland. After three years of hiking, soaking in hot springs, and exploring colourful Reykjavik and the beautiful landscapes of Iceland, I've moved to Barcelona to continue my career in the travel writing industry.

I'm a member of the TravMedia global alliance, and a certified specialist for Inspired by Iceland.
