Copy Editor, Copywriter, Developmental Editor, Editor, Writer

Travel writer and editor specialising in South Asia & New Zealand

I am a Himalayan and South Asian travel specialist, putting my knowledge for and love of the region to use in many projects, from trip planning to editing to article and content writing. I am always seeking new travel writing and editing projects, collaborations, and work opportunities, especially those focused on travel in Asia and the Himalayas/South Asia.

I am a versatile writer who can produce polished and engaging writing in multiple genres, from blog posts to advertising copy to academic journal articles. I currently produce branded content and copywriting services for travel companies, blog posts related to travel, and narrative/journalistic articles on a freelance basis.

I am an experienced editor and copyeditor, and a stickler for correct spelling and punctuation. I edit magazines, websites, and blog posts. In the past I have also edited academic theses and papers.

Riding Sharks and Climbing Mountains: In Conversation with Ailsa Ross

Question: Can you name the first woman to have summitted Mt. Everest? You probably know the first male duo to do so, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. But the first woman?

Everything to Know About Planning Your New Zealand Working Holiday

New Zealand is a dream travel destination for many travelers: it's naturally beautiful, with a rich culture, and it's generally pretty safe, with easygoing people. But, unless you live in eastern Australia or a handful of tiny Pacific Islands, New Zealand is also really, really far away.
