About MeI'm an irrepressible traveller, eternal optimist and award-winning journalist. And if you want travel & leisure writing that's sassy - but classy I like to think you've come to the right place.
I've been a journalist since star-struck school days when I reviewed rock bands for a national UK music paper. I've covered courts, crime, garden parties, health, women's issues, restaurant reviews and everything else a journalist gets to do.
Then I moved to Cairo and spent four years living in that amazing, crazy city. A follow-the-sun policy brought me to South Africa, and I'm now so proudly South African that my Yorkshire accent has faded to a mere fraction of its former self. Phew!
In 2016 I won the Arts Journalism Awards run by the National Arts Festival and Business & Arts South Africa in the review category, for my always honest and sometime acerbic theatre reviews!
