I was delighted to see my first piece for Condé Nast Traveller published today. I moved to Bristol for a year and was lucky enough to be commissioned to write a series of guides to the city. Here’s the first on the coolest things to do (put together with help from lots of lovely locals). Proud to do my bit for British tourism and a UK city (that’s not London) that really does deserve some hype.

I ended 2018 by guest lecturing at Leicester University to 50 Media & Communications students. I spoke about freelance life, the PR/journalism divide & travel industry boom.

I went to Palm Springs and gawped at beautiful buildings, visited ‘Slab City’ and marvelled at the bizarre lump that is Salvation Mountain. My piece for VICE’s travel mag Amuse here.
As always, Appear Here gave me some fantastic projects this month. I was lucky enough to interview the fantastic Georgia Spray, founder of Partnership Editions, write about the vegan movement and name the top illustrators to watch including my absolute favourite Alexandria Coe.
I wrote about streetwear bible HighSnobiety and interviewed the founder of KITRI for Appear Here. Lots of exciting stuff going on in the fashion world right now.
I’ve started working with travel startup A Place Less Ordinary and they asked me if I would write a love letter to London to launch the site. I left the city 6 months ago and miss it a lot – you can probably tell… Go read the piece here.
