Heya! I’m Simone—like “sea monster,” just without the “ster.”

I’m a freelance writer, published photographer, and certified ESL teacher.

I grew up in South Africa, lived in Japan, and am currently based in New York. In 2016, I started a blog while teaching abroad to share stories and pictures from my travels.

Today, I write and photograph for art, education, fashion, travel, and lifestyle brands. Check out my portfolio to see some of my work.

I’ve collaborated with:
a+u Magazine | Lands’ End | Foot Locker | DKNY | Prestel | Grace Farms Foundation | Lonely Planet

I’ve taught at:
New York English Center (USA) | Takanabe High School (Japan) | English Access (South Africa)
