I'm a British freelance journalist and specialise in writing features on travel, culture & food. My professional writing career began 25 years ago and has taken me trekking in Nepal, swimming with penguins in the Galapagos, searching for wild orangutans in Borneo, riding with Cuban cowboys, and most recently mountain gorilla tracking in Rwanda.
Writing books has been my focus for much of the last two years but I've also continued to write travel features for:
The Daily Telegraph \ The Scotsman \ The Sunday Telegraph
The Daily Mail \ Italia! Magazine \ Loupe \ Tonic Magazine
The Mail on Sunday\ Delicious\ The Times \ Family Traveller
The Sun \ Lodestars Anthology \ The Jewish Chronicle
The Globe & Mail \ Porthole Cruise & Travel \ The Australian
The New Zealand Herald \ Virtuoso Life Magazine
JRNY Magazine\ Alula Magazine \ Suitcase \ Starling Bank
