Editorial Producer - Travel Safety
I am World Nomad's Editorial Producer by weekday, campfire storyteller and off-road adventurer by weekend.
I grew up in the suburbs of Sydney (where nothing interesting ever happens), and after high school went to university for a Bachelor of Arts in Media, majoring in writing, television and radio.
When I started working at World Nomads in 2016, my inspiration to travel grew tenfold. After producing a guide to Nepal, I booked a trip to hike the Annapurna region, and soon after producing a guide to Colombia, booked a three month trip to explore the South American continent with my husband.
I love finding pet-friendly campsites along the east coast of Australia, taking the boat out to isolated parts of Lake Macquarie, and I often severely underestimate hiking trails (such as the W Trek in Patagonia). I'm allergic to mosquitoes, and dislike traffic so much that I moved out of Sydney to a quiet town up the coast near Newcastle.
