Freelance Writing

I was recently published to a potential 12 million readers in Hemispheres, the in-flight magazine of United Airlines. The piece was about train obsessives in Japan. You think our train spotters are weird? I have also recently completed several city guides for a major expat advice site.

I am a staff writer with the long-running and popular science, tech and health site RedOrbit. The site has hundreds of thousands of readers every day, and I have enhanced journalistic skills through interviewing high-profile people and finding interesting stories. Here is a sample, about how speaking in a made-up language can help with mental disorders and is generally very beneficial.

Writing for many other clients, I have delivered travel, lifestyle, entertainment and comedy content. Here is a piece for the TechDigg website on the brilliant S-Town podcast.

Using the latest techniques in SEO has been part of much of this work, as has promoting content on social media in creative ways.
