PARTNERSHIPS, SPONSORSHIPS, AND COLLABORATIONS
Would you like to discuss assignments, projects or collaboration? Contact me and let’s discuss! I’ve been writing, photographing and hosting video (+ now podcasts) throughout my career, and have a genuine passion for authentic storytelling. I have covered travel, style and culture for leading publications and entertainment networks. I started my career with the big publishers – Hearst and Conde Nast – before moving into Production, and then Marketing & Communications, but I never stopped telling stories or writing, nor solo traveling which I am so frequently prone to do. I have worked on –> Destination & tourism campaigns and coverage, branded content creation, interactive storytelling (multimedia), photo & video production, instagram takeovers, and brand consulting.
My writing, photography and videos have been featured by print publications across North America and Europe, including New York Magazine, Huffington Post, Travel + Leisure, Tastemade, Vogue, The New Yorker, Destination Canada, Discover America, French Connection, BlackBook Magazine, Haute Living Magazine, and Sloane Magazine. I wrote a children’s travel book dedicated to my niece & nephew titled “To Be We: The Adventures of Owen and Lucy” for preschool kids, and created L’Aventure Travel to share female-driven stories, podcasts and video on global travel and culture (I currently host the podcast “Suitcase Sojourn“)
As a writer/blogger/multimedia producer for well over a decade, I am adept at all aspects of online and digital marketing, especially given my extensive experience as a leader working for major media, advertising, hospitality and luxury brands. My social network and blog has served many brands and destinations as a wonderful platform for those looking to connect with a global audience who follow my adventures (specifically women ages 25-50), know my taste, and are interested in my opinion and valuable knowledge of the world. My blog is pushed out to all of my social profiles where an audience of roughly 40K are engaged with my stories, informing their decisions on travel and lifestyle.
I have participated in award winning social media and marketing campaigns in the travel industry and beyond, such as the Summer Festival Tour in partnership with Destination Canada and The New Yorker. Not to mention winning the Travel + Leisure SMITTY award for best overall use of social media for a hotel while I was the Director of PR & Communications for Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel. Read about ‘Where I have been‘ here.
I do accept press trips or sponsored travel opportunities but only when centered around luxury travel, eco consciousness, unique landscapes, adventure travel, food and wine, authentic cultural and/or urban experiences. I do not promote the large-ship cruise industry, backpacking, or family travel.
