Alex Crossley is olive magazine’s digital editor. She has been at olive since September 2014 after previously working in product development for Marks & Spencer.
As well as managing the website, Alex is one of olive’s most prolific travel writers, regularly exploring Europe and beyond (Japan, South Africa and Sri Lanka to name a few) to find the best local places to eat and drink, making the most of her contacts around the world. Alex studied French and Spanish at University of Bath and has lived and travelled extensively in the countries, and speaks both languages fluently. Alex also has family in Scandinavia and regularly visits the region.
Alex also has a particular passion for Japanese, South East Asian and Italian food and so you’ll find her regularly writing recommendations on these styles of restaurants.
During her time at olive, Alex has achieved a distinction in WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Level 2 Awards in Wines and Spirits, was the winner of New Digital Talent of the Year at the PPA Digital Awards 2018 and was named Digital Rising Star at the AOP Awards 2018.
