Journalist | Photographer | Travel Blogger


I’m a freelance journalist, English language editor, and travel blogger, based in Berlin, Germany

I love writing about travel, culture, contemporary society, technology, LGBT and gender issues.

I have written for L Mag in Berlin, GCN Magazine in Dublin and Diva Magazine in London.

I write the Barking Lizard Travel blog and have previously blogged about diverse subjects such as learning to skateboard in my 30’s, LGBT and gender issues.

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, I’ve travelled to over 40 countries and lived in New York, London, and Germany. I speak fluent German, have basic Russian and am currently learning Spanish.
