Imagine harnessing the true power of the written word. To inspire and inform, to evoke trust in your readers, to hook your audience’s attention and leave them hungry for more.

As a freelance journalist, copywriter and the founder of Casa Communications, this is what I do.

I have worked in publishing since 2008, began my journalism career in 2009 and have specialised in writing articles about architecture, interiors and design for over a decade. My work is renowned for its uniquely human approach to understanding the built environment and how it affects our lives and wellbeing.

I am passionate about distilling journeys and messages into content that captivates, whether it’s penning the perfect pages for magazines and print media, writing online articles that enthral and engage, or creating corporate copy with pinpoint accuracy.

Everyone has a story to tell. What’s yours?

Client testimonials

Julia has worked for me in the role of Acting Deputy Editor, Real Living, for the past few months, and has proven to be a highly skilled and capable journalist. Her attention to detail is exceptional and she consistently filed copy that was both well researched and a pleasure to read. Julia has a wonderful can-do attitude. I could trust her to manage individual tasks, as well as contribute within the broader team. I highly recommend Julia for any writing, subediting and features editing.

Elle Lovelock, Editor in Chief, Real Living and Home Beautiful, Are Media

“Julia is without a doubt Houzz’s highest-value contributor. From idea generation to powerful, informative and engaging stories and interacting with readers via the comments section, Julia excels in all aspects of story production.

As our favourite go-to writer, Julia delivers on time, on brief, without fail. Her stories are thoroughly researched, with a flowing, on-point narrative, and are always grammatically clean.

Most importantly, Julia’s stories are beloved by readers, and have proven to be some of Houzz’s highest engaging features by likes, comments and saves. I can’t recommend her highly enough as a colleague or a contributor.”
