Hi, I'm Melanie

I’m a freelance writer, photographer and editor currently based in Tbilisi, Georgia, the heart of the Caucasus. I'm a frequent contributor to CNN Travel and have worked on various projects with Atlas Obscura, Euronews Travel, The Telegraph, Time Out, and others. 



Working primarily in travel, food, and culture, I'm versed in long-form features, photo essays, profiles, in-depth guides and the occasional round-up. I've worked on a large variety of projects from detailed narratives on ancient fertility rituals in rural Georgia, to fun-color reads on German whiskey making (yep, it's a thing).

In addition to travel writing, I also fill my time with copywriting and copyediting services, and have a strong background in behind the scenes editorial work. Currently, I am the lead copyeditor for Beesting Digital, a white label and SEO copywriting agency that helps brands take their campaigns next level. Clients I've worked with under Beesting include IAMS, HSBC and TGS Global.


As the former managing and commissioning editor for Passion Passport, I also have a wide breadth of experience in digital publishing and a passion for curating stories of people and places from all over. In my time with Passion Passport, I coordinated campaigns with Japan Airlines and Northern Ontario's Tourism Board.

When I’m not penning or snapping something, you’ll usually find me getting full to the gills on Georgian food, buried in a book, out on a trail with my dog, or passionately dissecting a film with my husband.
