mwh_profilepic-minAn Australian journalist, travel writer, columnist and editor, I was born and raised in Sydney to Czech parents and began my career in news before crossing over to travel and lifestyle.

I’ve worn a number of hats in my career with various in-house and contract editorial posts in Australia with News Ltd and Bauer magazines; as senior feature writer at Cosmopolitan; a columnist for Wentworth Courier newspaper for four years; and two years as food editor for GQ Australia.

In 2014, I worked as a project editor with Australian Traveller Media editing a 100-page magazine Natural Australia: 16 Ultimate Escapes, returning later as acting editor of Australian Traveller magazine.

I have also worked closely with Tourism Australia, writing and consulting on a mix of editorial projects.

While based in Dubai from 2008-2010, I edited Time Out’s travel guidebook series and quarterly destination magazines including Time Out Muscat and Time Out Doha.

Returning to Dubai in 2014, I freelanced for a far-reaching mix of publications before joining luxury travel magazine Destinations of the World News as editor.

A versatile writer and seasoned traveller, my work is published internationally in leading, high-circulating broadsheet newspapers, luxury travel and inflight magazines and online. My stories span all continents and topics from straight destination features, city guides and food-focused journeys to insightful explorations of culture, tradition and history.

My articles have appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Sun-Herald, Condé Nast Traveller, CNN Traveller, The Australian Travel & Indulgence, The Boston Globe, The National, Australian Traveller, Gulf Life, Metro (UK), The Australian Financial Review, Luxury Travel magazine, The Daily Telegraph (UK), The Independent (UK), GQ (Australia), Cosmopolitan, Jetstar, Tiger Tales, CNN Travel, Out & About with Kids Travel, Luxury Travel & Corporate Holidays, Jetstar Asia, The National and Time Out.

I have also featured as a travel expert on radio in Sydney and Dubai, penned city and country guides for Columbus World Travel Guide, Vertu and Virgin and am the author of A Hedonist’s guide to Sydney and the 2013 and 2014 Wallpaper* city guide to Prague.
