I have worked in the entertainment, culture and travel spheres primarily, but with forays into architecture, design and even golf. I have written copy for various international companies and written travel guides for leading names in addition to travelling the world and working in such diverse jobs along the way as a wildland firefighter, bar staff and boat crew. I have also taught in an Egyptian secondary school where I was made Head of English in my second year.
Area Covered: Global, remotely. Will relocate for the right position. In Spain currently.
Work Experience Summary: I have just returned to London after some years travelling the world writing, editing, photographing, teaching and, of course, learning and I am now looking for a position that will incorporate my unique voice and eye into a team of inspiring creatives.
I quit teaching to begin my writing career in Egypt in 1996. Within two years I had co-founded an irreverent and incredibly successful pocket-sized guide to what was then the burgeoning scene of Cairo.
Launching a magazine from scratch in a foreign country honed my considerable creative and project management skills from the sublime to the ridiculous, the executive to the menial. And as a what\'s-on guru in Egypt elsewhere, I have kept my finger on various pulses and extended my array of contacts across the social gamut, from penniless artists to powerful ambassadors.
Since then I have lived on five continents and paid my way writing and editing travel and dive guides, lifestyle and culture features, trade and corporate copy and brochures, theatre and art reviews and more.
Education Summary: 8 O levels, 3 A levels, BA (Hons) 2:1 Classical Studies from University of Bristol. Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
