I started out as a football journalist in 2000 at Haymarket's FourFourTwo.com and later became editor

of travel magazine, TNT Australia & New Zealand


After eight years abroad, I moved back to the UK in 2010 and went freelance full-time, specialising in outdoor adventure. As well as journalism, I've been involved in numerous books; writing, subediting and editing.


Nowadays I'm busy with coaching and my own training, but I'm still open to occasional, compelling commissions.
