I was born in London and spent my young childhood in the city and Hertfordshire. At age 11 I moved with my parents to New York City, briefly, and Long Island, NY.
By age 12 I was living in Severna Park, Maryland: USA suburbia in all its fine stereotypes. I spent six good years there, going to middle school and high school before heading to Boston University to gain my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations.
At university I spent my time studying, volunteering, and working while slowly starting my return to England through a summer and a semester of internships in London (and a month of backpacking around Europe) before graduation.
After that happy day when they handed me my diploma I jetted back to London to work for a summer before flying off to Thailand to teach English to high school kids for one term.
After teaching and traveling to Laos, Cambodia and (briefly) Australia, I returned to England, and after a three week trip to the States to visit old friends and family, I settled in to a travel marketing internship at a great company called Black Tomato. Meanwhile, I became one of the very lucky £10 Poms of 2009. So after a three month internship, I headed Down Under for about 5 months.
Now I’m back in London, back working for Black Tomato where I get to talk about travel, blogging and social media all day. What a job.
So keep checking my blog to see what I’m up to now!
