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

I’m a freelance writer, photographer, and English language teacher. I grew up in South Africa, lived in Japan, and am currently based in New York.

In 2016, I started a blog to share some writings and photographs of my travels.

Today, I write creative copy and take photographs for arts, education, fashion, and travel brands. Check out my portfolio to see some of my work.

I’ve collaborated with:
Lonely Planet | DKNY | Foot Locker | Lands’ End | Prestel | Grace Farms Foundation | Metropolis Japan 

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