About me

I’m a UK-based freelance writer and editor, with a focus on travel. Japan is my speciality – I’m proficient in Japanese, lived in Kyoto for a year, and am just back from my seventh trip there (a three-month exploration of Kyoto, Nara, Chubu, Tohoku, Hokkaido and Tokyo). So whatever your Japan needs – article, guidebook, interview, podcast – just let me know, I’ll almost certainly be very happy to help.

But Japan aside, whatever the project, if I’m interested in it, I’ll work on it! Need someone to write about Cold War history in East Asia? No problem. Record a podcast about how to travel with a bizarre allergy? I’m on it. Edit your academic work on pedagogical models at Hogwarts? I’d be honoured. Speak about sexuality, mental health, cooking, the joys of smashing the patriarchy while dressing like a fifties housewife most of the time? Just ask.
