I migrated into journalism after a chance meeting and interesting conversation in an aeroplane bound from Libya in 2009. The result? A year later I moved to Egypt and became editor and writer at Obelisque, a quarterly lifestyle glossy printed in Cairo. Freelance pieces have been printed in The Times, The Corkman, Yachting Monthly, The Chronicle (printed in Cairo).
Living in Cairo with a front seat of the Egyptian Revolution has been good, it is an amazing year to be here experiencing the change in the Middle East.
After a long break bringing up three children, I co-founded the Western Academy of Beijing, China in 1994 and finished an OU MBA in 1999. A move to Almaty, Kazakhstan in 1998 gave the opportunity to cut my teeth in publishing with a Russian lifestyle magazine and start up two successful major retail events. Finding that I enjoyed the print process, I became editor of a local magazine when I moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2002.
