Writer • Editor • Copywriter • Media Consultant • Digital Influencer • Hotel Reviewer
I am currently working with LuxeGetaways as the managing editor, while also working closely with the writers, editors, publishers, advertisers and media to further develop the marketing and branding of the website. Other current projects include hotel reviews for The Telegraph UK, numerous content writing assignments for several leading digital advertising agencies, and travel influencer marketing for Marriott International. Having an International perspective on business, combined with a firm grasp on the latest media technologies, I enjoy thinking outside of the box while finding creative strategies that best benefit my media clients, travel/hospitality consulting accounts, writing/editing projects and travel assignments.
Being an award-winning travel writer, I have provided my writing and editing services to international magazines, online media outlets, digital agencies and copywriting clients; while also serving as an ambassador and digital influencer to worldwide travel and lifestyle brands. My areas of expertise include travel, tourism, hospitality, lifestyle, golf, spa/wellness, food/drink, theater, lgbt and fashion.
While a majority of my work is associated with travel and lifestyle magazines, I also collaborate with a number of brands to further develop their media content. My editorial relationships have included working with Signature Travel & Style Magazine (Australia), Bespoke Magazine (St. Regis Hotels & Resorts), SkyLife Magazine (Turkish Airlines), World Travel Magazine (Asia), Telegraph Travel (The Telegraph UK), Loews Magazine (Loews Hotels & Resorts), Montage Magazine (Montage Hotels & Resorts), Upscale Living Magazine (N. America), Global Living Magazine (N. America), Modern Luxury Magazine (D.C.), Sea Island Life Magazine (Sea Island Resort), 453 and a Half (Dick’s Sporting Goods), JustLuxe (Digital), A Luxury Travel Blog (Digital) and more.
Whether for customized direct promotions and reviews, or developing content for feature editorials, my professional background and life experiences provide a uniquely honest and direct approach to each project. My work with a variety of publications and ongoing international writing assignments allow me the privilege to work with a fantastic collection of clients globally. Feel free to reach out to me directly, and provide your contact information and details of the project/assignment so that we can setup a time to further discuss. Thank you. ~ Damon M. Banks
