WRITER, EDITOR, ORGANISER
I’m a writer and editor who’s into all sorts of things, especially gardens; craft and design; interiors; and people. I have over 15 years of editorial experience including nine on Homes & Antiques magazine, where
I was deputy editor from 2009 - 2013, writing, commissioning and editing stories on everything from antique Indian jewellery to the vogue for vintage lettering. Prior to that, I spent four years writing freelance about food and travel for publications including Waitrose Food Illustrated, Food & Travel, The Independent,
Condé Nast Traveller and delicious (Australia).
I left Homes & Antiques to pursue my interest in gardens, working first as fair manager on the launch of GROW London, the contemporary garden fair described by Gardenista as ‘inspirational genius’. More recently, I have worked with award-winning garden designer Luciano Giubbilei on his book, The Art of Making Gardens, published by Merrell. I write for Gardens Illustrated, Waitrose Garden and The Simple Things, and am studying horticulture while dreaming of plants to try in my own small garden.
Current/recent roles include book editing; arts editor for Family Traveller magazine; editorial consultancy for the English-Speaking Union and a managing editor role for a fitness magazine, as well as freelance articles and book projects. I have written advertorials, brochures and press releases for travel companies, kitchen manufacturers and tourist boards and am very happy interviewing in or translating from French, German and Spanish. I love new challenges and meeting people, so if you have a project you would like to work on together, or an article you would like written, do please drop me a line on email@example.com.
