I am a London-based travel writer and consultant. I have visited 97 countries and am passionate about travel and food.
Originally from California, I graduated from Brown University in Rhode Island and began my career in finance. I spent several years working for Goldman Sachs and a hedge fund in San Francisco before moving to the UK and launching the A Lady in London blog in 2007. You can read the full story here.
In conjunction with the blog, I offer travel planning services for clients, and social media, blogger outreach, and digital strategy consulting services for businesses.
Additionally, I teach classes and workshops about blogging and social media at General Assembly and The Guardian, and speak at a variety of events and conferences, including Social Media Week, the World Travel Market, Internet Week Europe, and Traverse. I also lecture and give talks at universities, including the University of Cambridge, and offer webinars to a global audience through A Lady in London.
My travel writing and recommendations have been featured on National Geographic Intelligent Travel, Lonely Planet, BA High Life, Time Out, the Metro, and other leading travel and lifestyle publications.
My photography is regularly commissioned by Eater, and has featured in exhibitions at institutions like the Leeds College of Art. I also work with BBC Travel to share my photos of London through their Twitter and Instagram accounts. Additionally, Esquire has listed me as one of Instagram’s 20 Coolest Travel Photographers.
I have been interviewed on Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio in the United States, Cleo Magazine in Australia, and other major international media outlets. I am also a regular contributor to the Teletext Holidays blog.
