Communications Consulting

With expertise from 8 years in the travel industry, including as VP of Content for Trip.com and Head of Editorial for Skyscanner, combined with first-hand arts-sector knowledge, I can help you develop a strategy for your content and communications, or act as a digital producer, for example on a new website. I bring an editorial eye and academic chops to archival material and other content to help your work shine.
