I’m an award-winning freelance travel writer and, starting in November 2019, acting deputy editor at National Geographic Traveller magazine.

My professional adventures have taken me to curious corners of the planet — from the Mayan temples of southern Mexico and living root bridges of Meghalaya to the nightclubs of Miami and the shores of Lake Malawi.

I specialise in adventure, wildlife and solo travel, and have in-depth knowledge of Latin America and India — areas of the world I return to time and time again.

Significant projects to date include the National Geographic Traveller October 2018 cover story on Indian wildlife, for which I penned tales of snow leopards in Ladakh, Bengal tigers in Rajasthan and one-horned rhinos in Assam, and South Africa Tourism’s 2019 digital campaign and brochure, which included 12 published interviews and five features based on my travels across six states.

Previous roles of mine include assistant editor for National Geographic Traveller, assistant editor for ABTA Magazine and, during a year living and working in Chile, news reporter for The Santiago Times.
