About Me

I’m Samantha, a freelance journalist and wanderholic from Vancouver, Canada. Currently, I split my time between Canada and Australia, with regular expeditions inbetween.

This site acts as a portfolio but also as a platform to share stories I’ve collected from my journeys around the globe.

A self-described travel addict, I spend the majority of my free time travelling and the rest of my time reminiscing about it. The stories you’ll read are derived from my adventures, through brushing into other cultures, meeting extraordinary people as I continue to get hopelessly around the world.

As a journalist, I have a strong foundation in writing for both print and online mediums. However, my training included producing multimedia pieces, handling and shooting a DSLR camera and filming and editing video. My byline appears across a number of print and online publications in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
