Hi, I’m Toby, an editor, writer and travel addict. I like going on adventures, especially to the North, though I also like hot tubs, comfy beds and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Professionally, I’m first and foremost an editor. I edited Time Out in Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore, and was the launch editor of the multi-award-winning N by Norwegian for Norwegian Air Shuttle.
As editorial development director at Ink, the world’s biggest travel media company, I mainly worked on pitches and launches for some of the world’s biggest airlines, from American Airlines to Etihad, Qatar Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
I definitely couldn’t sell ice to the eskimos, but I’m confident I could pitch them a brilliant ice-based print and digital strategy.
As a writer, I like stories that involve adventure, discovery, and always people – preferably characters with a deep passion or a real tale to tell. In a world with lots of talking, I still believe in listening (and taking notes). I also still believe in the tenets of good journalism.
I also enjoy multimedia projects, and am lucky enough to regularly work with some of the best travel photographers and videographers around.
I’m always on the lookout for interesting projects, whether editorial consulting, writing or coming up with bespoke content solutions. So get in touch…
