About Me:
Im a journalist with ten years of experience as a features writer, and an award-winning travel blogger with a loyal and engaged community of readers.

Since 2007 Ive worked as a features writer covering news and events for a regional monthly newspaper, annual print magazines, and local news websites in Scotlands Outer Hebrides.

There and while traveling I reported on everything from education, arts, and lifestyle, to business and politics; previous interviewees have included the former First Minister of Scotland, best-selling author Joanne Harris, and members of the cast and crew of the Outlander TV series.

In 2011, after working in China for a year, I founded Stories My Suitcase Could Tell, a multiple award-winning travel blog that inspires readers to explore the world, at home and abroad. The site was named Cosmopolitan Magazines Best Travel Blog in 2014, and has also been featured in National Geographic Traveller, Buzzfeed, and The Sun, among others.

At Stories My Suitcase Could Tell, I draw on my journalism experience to create informative, engaging, and shareable narratives focused on various aspects of travel, from food to culture.

Bringing both passions together, I now also work as a freelance writer, with bylines in Roads and Kingdoms, Edible Queens, and Buzzfeed.
