About Me

Hello! I’m a travel and culture writer, currently based in Mexico City. I grew up in a small town in Australia and ran away to London as soon as I finished high school. Since then, I’ve written my way across South East Asia, Latin America and Europe, and even managed to discover a renewed love for rural and regional Australia.

I spent two years as a staff writer at HerCanberra, a lifestyle website and magazine, and completed an internship at BUST Magazine in New York in 2017. I’ve also managed social media for Girls Rock! Canberra and subedited at Purple Sneakers, a niche music blog.

In 2018, I graduated with a double degree in Arts and Economics from the Australian National University. I now travel and freelance full-time, with articles published online and in print for outlets including Fodor’s Travel Guide, Ms. Magazine and Dazed.

My work focusses on budget and sustainable travel, covering everything from where to find the best vegetarian tacos to how to make sure your trip has a positive impact on the local economy. The ‘culture’ part basically means feminism; I write about my personal experiences and share stories of the women that knock my socks off. Also books.

As a copywriter, I have worked with national brands on a variety of projects covering property, social enterprise, finance, fashion, beauty and more. I’m a big fan of creating an authentic voice that connects a brand with their audience in a relevant way.

If you’ve made it this far, you should know that my middle name is St George and, yes, I do hate it. You can get in touch with me via mollysgmcl@gmail.com.
