Work With Me
Thank you for your interest in partnering with Wander-Lush and in working with me, Emily. I specialise in authentic, thoughtful, in-depth storytelling that connects with readers to stoke their passion for responsible travel and cultural discovery.
My own love of travel and storytelling has inspired some of the world’s biggest travel publications to showcase my work. Now, I want to take the opportunity to showcase yours.
I have an eye for photography and a nose for a good story. I am a compulsive researcher and list-maker by nature, always collecting and curating information. I am a native English speaker and outside of Wander-Lush, I have worked as a trained journalist, editor, copywriter and communications consultant. I’m a self-taught photographer, aspiring videographer, and most importantly, I know my way around SEO, social media and content marketing.
I am interested in forming long-term partnerships with like-minded businesses. My professional background working with NGOs and social enterprises in the areas of Fair Trade, sustainable fashion, women’s empowerment and public health has shaped my philosophy that tourism can be a force for good, especially in developing communities. I am particularly interested in partnering with individuals and organisations that hold similar values.

Selected Features, Partners & Collaborators
In 2022, Wander-Lush received more than than 4.8 million page views.
My readers are predominantly women aged 25-44, are interested in both travel and ‘green living’, and consider themselves art and culture aficionados.
As such, I focus on content that promotes responsible and ethical travel; slow travel and cultural immersion; traditional textiles, crafts and handmade; and ‘off-the-beaten-path’ destinations.
If you represent a destination, hotel, tour company, activity or product with a great story behind it, I would love to work with you to bring your narrative to life.
In the past, I’ve partnered with brands, NGOs and social enterprises to establish affiliate partnerships; pen sponsored reviews; write guest blog posts; create social media takeovers; produce high-quality photography and video for marketing; and much more. Write me an email and let’s discuss how we can work together.
I always disclose my partnerships with full transparency and expect full editorial control over any content produced. If a portion of your costs are donated to a community fund, NGO or similar, I will always cover this out of my own pocket.
