Work With Me

Hello! I’m so glad you’ve landed on this page. I work with tourism businesses that want to make the world a better place, and give people incredible and unique experiences in Scotland.

ABOUT ME

I’m originally from New Zealand but have been travelling the world since 2016. I am now permanently based near Edinburgh in Scotland- my favourite country in the world! 

My first love is adventure, and a very close second is travel- and these are at the heart of Wayfaring Kiwi. Over the years some of my adventures have included:

+ Learning to snowboard and completing 2 ski seasons in Canada
+ Living and travelling in a van in the Canadian Rockies
+ Horse riding for over 20 years
+ Hiking the length of Scotland solo
+ White water rafting, caving, bungy jumping, via ferrata and much more!

I’ve been on a few adventures but I don’t classify myself as an athlete or a badass with nerves of steel. In fact, I consider myself to be the average female traveller, and if I can do something, anyone else can. 

Making memories and having a good story to tell is more valuble to me than spending my money on objects, which is why I push myself to always try something new.

For the last 10 years I have worked hard to develop myself as writer and marketing guru in the travel and tourism industry. Before I became a full time professional travel blogger I worked in the following roles:

+ Journalist
+ Editor
+ International Travel Agent
+ Business Owner
+ Website Designer
+ Digital Marketing Manager in tourism

So you can see I have an understanding of the travel and tourism industry on both the inside and outside! During this time I have won several awards (as you’ll see below) and worked with many businesses to achieve their visibility goals. 

How I can help your business: 

  • Blog posts on Wayfaring Kiwi or your website (written with SEO in mind)
  • Copywriting
  • Photography (camera kit: Sony A6500, Mavic Pro drone)
  • Videography (including drone footage)
  • Social Media campaigns on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
  • Instagram takeovers/ promotions
  • Interviews in any medium (print, radio, online) 
  • Public Speaking 
  • Press Trips
