About Me

Elysia Brenner, content guru

A book-loving child from an early age, I first noticed that manipulation of the English language came easily to me when I was surprised with my first writing award at age 10.

I used my university years to shore up my natural language instincts with a degree in Marketing & Communications and Psychology before embarking on a 10-year adventure in copywriting, editing, journalism, and content management spanning the corporate and leisure worlds (and two continents). Most of my work is in the fields of travel & tourism, food & drink, culture, fashion & design, games, and entertainment & nightlife
