my story


I have more than 10 years of editorial and content creation experience, with a sharp focus on travel, food and culture subjects. I’m currently based in the ever-vibrant and always delicious Bangkok for my role as the Features Editor at Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia magazine. Managing a monthly content schedule, I edit and write copy on travel news, trends and journeys across the Asia-Pacific region for each issue of the magazine.

I’m originally from Australia, and have spent most of my career among the buzz of digital offices and editorial rooms across Sydney, working at Yahoo!7, SBS Feast magazine, and Donna Hay‘s magazine, website and social platforms.

I love telling an untold story, and this is probably best seen in one of the projects I’m most proud about, my award-winning travel blog Strangertalk. Collaborating with my partner, photographer Leigh Griffiths, we have spent the past three years documenting local traditions, crafts, culture and cuisine across the world through Strangertalk’s website and social platforms. We were awarded Best Travel Blog” and “Blog of the Year in 2017 during Saveur magazine’s annual blog awards, which led us to directing and filming videos for Saveur, as well as for Strangertalk, bringing our stories to life through captivating visuals and an original point of view.
