Managing EditorAlice Clarke

Alice works at Condé Nast Publications and oversees Destination MO as its managing editor. She studied History of Art at the University of St Andrews, the small but beautiful blustery town on the Scottish coast, before settling in London. A foodie at heart she loves to seek out new restaurants across the capital, but is most content when combining that passion with travel.

Chief Sub EditorFiona Russell

Chief sub editor at Condé Nast Publications, Fiona has a background in fashion and lifestyle magazines. One of her best life adventures was backpacking around South-East Asia. That was more than 20 years ago, yet she still misses the fresh papaya. She lives in north London, overlooking the Regent’s Canal. A running obsessive, she has run the ‘amazing’ London Marathon six times.

Picture EditorVictoria Lukens

Trained in fine art and graphic design in LA and London, Victoria has held a lifelong passion for photography and has written on the subject for many specialist journals as well as contributing to The Independent on Sunday where she was ‘The Review’ photo editor before joining Condé Nast as a visual creative researcher and photography consultant.


Alex Gorton

As a freelance journalist based in London, Alex thinks there’s no better time to visit the city than in the long, light-filled days of early summer. Having written for the FT, Condé Nast Traveller, Tatler, The Telegraph and Departures, she’s been lucky enough to travel the world, staying in some wonderful Mandarin Oriental hotels along the way.

Jeremy Wayne

Jeremy is a self-confessed ‘hospitality nerd’, who started reading Michelin Red Guides aged eight and decorated his boarding-school study with menu covers from the world’s top restaurants – La Tour d’Argent was a favourite. Restaurant editor of Tatler since 2000, he also runs the JWA consultancy, which helps hotels and restaurants raise their service standards on both sides of the pond.

Neena Dhillon

London-based travel and lifestyle journalist Neena covers the latest hotel, restaurant and spa happenings for international publications, interviewing the world’s leading interior designers, hoteliers and chefs. She admits to having a soft spot for Destination MO for ‘experiencing the refined glamour of Taipei, the welcoming oasis that is Bangkok and the riverside allure of Shanghai.’

Ming Tang-Evans

Ming is a London-based photographer whose work spans food, interiors and travel. For Destination MO, he filmed our profile of Danny Lai at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. For such a fast-moving, ever-changing city, Ming is amazed that Danny has worked at the hotel for all the years he has been visiting the city since his childhood.

Mark Graham

Mark has pounded city streets, country roads, mountain trails and desert tracks on five continents, recently completing half marathons in Paris and London and a 10k race from Beijing’s Tiananmen Square to the Temple of Heaven. The widely published writer divides his time between Beijing and Hong Kong.

Danielle Demetriou

Danielle swapped her native London for Tokyo in 2007 and now lives in Nakameguro, a quiet, creative neighbourhood. She has written about Japan for publications including The Daily Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal and Condé Nast Traveller. Sushi on tap, bargain lunch menus and heated toilet seats are among her favourite Tokyo perks.

Bella Blissett

Bella is a journalist and brand consultant by week, an Oxford University history student by weekend. Flitting between the latest lipstick and the lives of the Tudors has proved to be a happy existence. She has a beauty page in the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine and has also contributed to the Evening Standard, Red and Tatler.

Anders Schønnemann

For Anders, a photographic career was the perfect excuse to indulge his love of food, interiors, travel and those magical ‘lifestyle’ moments. Based in Copenhagen, he spends much of his time flying around the globe for all manner of advertising, editorial and personal projects, spending precious times in between with his two young daughters.
