About FlashGowdey

DSC_0797In a nutshell…is a horrible way to start a bio.

My name is Emily Gowdey-Backus and I’m a freelance journalist and photographer originally from Connecticut and Massachusetts.

In my free time I rock climb, scour food blogs for nut free dessert recipes, read whatever I can get my hands on (Barbara Kingsolver is always a favorite go to), photograph friends in the outdoors, and live a colorful, bold life.

My cup runneth over.

In August I completed my Master’s degree in International Journalism from Cardiff University in the capital city of Wales, the heart of the UK. All posts categorized as ‘a la Cardiff‘ chronicle my musings as a post-graduate student, fascinating bits of Welsh culture and coverage of inspiring journalists practicing a beautiful craft.

My twitter handle is @FlashGowdey and you can check out all my adventures on Instagram too.
