About me

Travel, culture, interviews

I’ve written for most of the UK’s national newspapers, both as travel journalist and on stories ranging from big-wave surfers to plastic pollution. I’m a regular contributor to The Times and Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Financial Times and The Guardian. Magazine bylines include The Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Condé Nast Traveller and Wanderlust. Broadcast credits includes BBC Radio, Times Radio and the occasional TV documentary. I'm also an experienced public speaker and panellist.

As well as winning awards for individual features, I was named Travel Writer of the Year in 2021 and Freelance Writer of the Year in 2020.

I write about:
Travel. Especially adventure travel, everyman extreme activities or journeys rooted in bigger ideas.
Human interest. Interesting people doing interesting things, ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Innovation. I’m interested in challenges and change.
The sea. On it, in it, under it, by it. I'm not fussy.
