Jo’s written features and photography have featured in many online and print publications including The Saturday Paper, The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, The Independent, International Traveller, Boat International, Vacations & Travel, Mindfood, Women in Pop, Time Out Melbourne, AWOL, yen and VICE.

Working as a communicator, writer and photographer on expeditions to Antarctica (in 2013) and the Simpson Desert (in 2015), Jo is accustomed to working in hostile environments to capture out-of-the-ordinary projects held in out-of-the-way places.

Writing and taking photos in isolated, unforgiving environments has enabled her to learn that she can write about almost anything, almost anywhere.
