I'm an outdoor journalist with more than 16 years' experience of writing and editing for magazines, newspapers, books and websites. I also write, narrate and present for video.
I started out as a football journalist at Haymarket's FourFourTwo.com and became editor of travel magazine TNT Australia & New Zealand.
After seven years of travelling and living abroad,
I moved back to the UK in 2010 and went freelance, specialising in my passion for outdoor adventure.
That usually means writing about long-distance running and walking, fitness, reviewing gear and technology, authoring guidebooks, or working on
I've hiked many of the world’s famous and not-so-famous long-distance trails. I've climbed, and fallen down, a few mountains.
I've also become addicted to trail ultramarathon running and in 2016 I represented Great Britain at
the age of 40.
My boots and daps are regularly muddied in Britain's glorious South West, especially in the Brecon
Beacons and the Cotswolds – where I grew up
and now live again.
I just love being in the great outdoors, ideally exercising somewhere lumpy.
