I'm a freelance writer and journalist and my specialist topics are Brazil and Rio de Janeiro. I've also recently made the move into publishing more content in the conservation, nature and science fields.

I'm currently in Dublin where I'm studying an MA in TV and radio journalism and working as a digital content specialist as well as writing freelance for publications and my own blog. I've worked as a writer for over six years and have been published in several newspapers, magazines and online publications including Evening Standard, Hemispheres, World Travel Magazine, Ozy, Time Out, Atlas Obscura, Culture Trip, Frommer's, Fodor's, and many others. I also worked for two years as a news reporter for The Rio Times and as a broadcast reporter for the Olympics Broadcasting Services during the 2016 Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro.
