In 2000 I started out as a football journalist at Haymarket's FourFourTwo.com and later 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 full-time, specialising in my passion for outdoor adventure.


I'm usually very busy, but still open to compelling commissions from new publications.


I'm passionate about words and also still enjoy editing, subediting and proofreading, from home.
