I'm a journalist with more than 18 years' experience of writing for and editing magazines, newspapers, books and websites.
Since 2010 I've been freelance full-time, specialising in my passion for outdoor adventure.
That usually means writing about long-distance running or walking, fitness, reviewing equipment or technology, editing or authoring books.
I thank my midlife crisis for getting me addicted to ultramarathon running. I've represented my country, recorded competitive results at some of the world's toughest races, and currently hold speed records (Fastest Known Times) on two of the UK's long-distance trails.
Ultimately I just love being in the great outdoors, ideally exercising somewhere lumpy.
My inov-8 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.
