WHO I AM
Hi there, I’m Cat.
Exploring has always been a huge part of my life and, in 2018, I decided that I needed to find a way to share my experiences from the road. I wanted to create a space where real human connections are made, growing a community where people can use my knowledge to help guide them on their own journeys.
In my life I’ve been a student, a teacher, a writer, a musician, and a doctor. Above all though, I long for a life of adventure, forging real connections. That’s how Cat’s Nine Lives was born.
This is a place for me to share my love of travel and adventure with my engaged community. I’m a visual storyteller and travel writer, and there’s nothing I love more than helping others to tell their own stories.
What story do you want to tell?
WHY PARTNER WITH ME?
Above all, I’m a storyteller.
Whether you’re an established brand looking for a new way to tell your story, or a new business looking for an engaged audience, I would love to help you. In a time where people are placing more importance than ever on taking care of the world around them, my focus on sustainable and ethical travel makes me well positioned in the conversation.
Travel has become more accessible than ever before, and the first place that people turn is no longer to guidebooks. Travellers want to hear about personal experiences to inform their own. They want to know that somebody they trust is showing them the way.
Using beautiful imagery and compelling words, I can bring your brand to life. From destinations to experiences and products, I believe that I can tell your story to the world.
HOW CAN WE COLLABORATE?
Do you have a destination, experience or product that you want to promote?
Do you want beautiful images to showcase your brand?
Do you want access to an established social media presence?
I have a variety of ways in which I can help you.
A picture can tell a thousand words. The right image can invoke emotion and truly show customers what you’re about. Whether you want brand new images to promote your business or simply wish to purchase some of my existing shots to use, I can help bring your brand to life.
What makes you unique? Do you have a tour, attraction or new travel product you want to showcase? Are you a hotel, restaurant or shop that you’d love travellers should know about? I can visit you or try out your product, take photos and give an honest opinion.
Be the next ‘must visit’ location! From stunning photography to thoughtful words, I can showcase your destination at its best and show my audience why they should make you their next stop. Put me on a plane and I’ll bring my community to you!
There’s nothing a brand values more than loyalty, and there’s nothing an audience trusts more than someone who believes in a product. If you believe that our values align then I would love to try your product to recommend to my valued community.
Do you offer something different and want to promote it? I can provide a post written with your brand in mind. Your story in my words, featured across my social media channels and on my homepage. Reach an established audience quickly and easily.
I can give your brand the exposure it needs. From giveaways and contests, providing great exposure for both start-ups and established companies, to instagram takeovers. You can reach an audience just like me, looking for a product just like yours.
My audience cares about the world they travel through. They’re looking for unconventional experiences in established destinations, and new information about unusual places. Although most of them live in an urban jungle, they love getting out into the wild as often as they can. I aim to show off everything that you have on offer to them.

Authenticity and editorial control are incredibly important to me for the trust of my audience.

All experiences will be discussed openly and honestly. I operate on a policy of full disclosure (please read my disclaimer).
