I’m an award-winning freelance travel journalist and photographer with 12 years’ experience as a reporter.

I have written more than 100 travel features and contributed to almost 30 media outlets across the US, Europe, Asia and Australia.

I’ve written for CNN, The BBC, The Guardian, The South China Morning Post, The Australian Financial Review, Travel Talk magazine,  SilverKris magazine, Smile magazine,  JetStar magazine, Mabuhay magazine, Silkwinds magazine, Fah Thai magazine, The West Australian newspaper and Flight Centre.

Before going freelance I worked as a reporter for nine years for newspapers in Australia, including seven years at The West Australian, the country’s 3rd biggest newspaper.

I’ve been a chief crime reporter, political correspondent, health reporter and features writer. But since leaving newspapers my travel writing and photography work has taken me to more than 30 countries.
