A bit about me…

👋  Hi there, I’m Nicci, a writer and journalist. 

I got my first job in journalism in 1999 – writing for Travel Maps Australia while WWOOFing my way around the country, living and learning on sustainable properties.

My first taste of the digital nomad lifestyle 🤗

Back in the UK, I won a scholarship to study magazine journalism and spent the next few years working across lifestyle media (Emap, BBC, Bauer, IPC Media, Saatchi & Saatchi, Weber Shandwick) before starting up my online magazine, Rude. 

My work has been published in The Huffington Post, The Sun, Daily Star, Here’s Health, Wellbeing, Country Walking, Eve, Expedia, This Morning, High50, Scarlet, & many B2B titles. 

📚 Author at Hodder, Hamlyn, Wiley, Need2Know, This Morning. 12 books on health & lifestyle. 

🦄 Firebird Media: I work with startups, non-profits, tech and SaaS companies. I’m deep-diving into the wonderful world of UX.

📩 The Shift, a newsletter on the future of work and digital culture. A curation of the best content and conversations online, reviews,  recommendations, and interviews with interesting people.

Get inspired and learn something new! Tips and large bank transfers welcome.

I want to see more diversity in media, so I’m on the committee for the NUJ London Freelance Branch and Freelance Industrial Council, campaigning for better pay & conditions, and organising events. I’m a loud & proud union member. 

I love helping people explore their creativity and develop their digital skills. I’m a mentor, media trainer, and Support a Sister via Women for Women International and AllBright’s Digital Sisterhood
