Most of my online work has centred around Condé Nast's three daily web magazines, HotelChatter, Jaunted and VegasChatter, all of which I wrote for from 2008 to 2015, when they were incorporated into Condé Nast Traveler. I edited all three sites at various points, and was assistant editor at HotelChatter at the time of its closure. Highlights included staying in hell holes for HotelChatter, braving full body scans and reviewing the world's first long haul, no frills flight from London to Kuala Lumpur for Jaunted, and countless endurance tests for VegasChatter, including my way through seven buffets in 48 hours, swapping numbers with Elvis impersonators, marrying a sandwich, and stalking Barack Obama through the casinos.

I've also written for Condé Nast Traveler, High50, Grazia Daily, Culture24, TheFirstPost, Huffington Post, Mail Online, i-escape, Racked and Cheapoair. I was the Vegas expert for SimonSeeks and the European/Asia editor for Jetsetter, when I launched their UK site.

I'm writing daily for online publications, but here are some of my favourite stories:
