Danielle E. Owen

Freelance Travel Journalist & SEO Jedi



Hi, I’m Danie! A freelance writer, international hot sauce aficionado, and full-time traveler of 7+ years and 85+ countries across 6 continents.

My travel writing has been published on AFAR, Scott’s Cheap Flights, WestJet Airlines, Thrillist, Skyscanner, Calvert Journal, Global Citizens Association, Nine Travel Australia, Hostelling International, Matador Network, Leafly, Troupe, and more.

I’ve also worked as a Branded Content writer for numerous sites in partnership with Visit Britain, Visit Croatia, Eurostar, Delta Airlines, Tahiti Tourisme, and more.

In addition, I’ve had my (non-travel) writing published on Scary Mommy, HuffPost, Parent.com, Highlights, Cricket Media, Thrive Global, Psych Central, and more.

I have years of experience in the freelance writing industry in all capacities– from SEO keyword research and article optimization, to content writing, editing, uploading via a CMS, image sourcing, social media marketing, and full search engine optimization.

Honors graduate of Journalism (B.A.) New York University, cum laude.
