About Me

As a freelance journalist and writer, my specialisms include the environment, human rights, culture, and travel. With an MA in Latin American Studies, I have a special interest in the region and have reported from Mexico and Central America on issues including forced disappearances, traditional beekeeping, anti-mining protests, and the impact of hydroelectric dams.

I cut my teeth as a communications professional working in a busy media team at the London Ambulance service. Since then, I have also worked in communications and public relations roles for a UK-based charity, a Mexican non-profit school, and a London University.

I have a BA in English Literature, a National Council for the Training of Journalist (NCTJ) Multimedia Journalism Diploma, and an MA in Latin American Studies from University College London (UCL).

I am also the co-author of Footprint’s guide to Belize, Guatemala & Southern Mexico, and a contributing writer for the latest edition of The Rough Guide to Central America on a Budget.
