I've been working as a freelance travel writer and editor for 20 years working with large international publishers, newspapers and magazines providing and editing content for print and digital. My work as a freelance means I am an extremely good time manager, well used to operating to tight deadlines and using a methodical approach to planning and organising my workload in order to juggle tasks and projects. I have solid experience of writing and editing for well-respected international publishers, writing for the web and a proven awareness of the importance of branding and house style.
