I am an award-winning travel writer and freelance journalist, based in the UK.
I have been writing about travel for almost 20 years, for British media including the BBC, the (London) Times and the Independent, international magazines such as National Geographic Traveller and Wanderlust, the global travel publishers Rough Guides and many other outlets around the world.
I report from the Middle East for From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4 and World Service, and have been a guest on Radio 4’s Excess Baggage and Traveller’s Tree.
I like to travel alone, finding unusual stories in familiar destinations. Specialities include:
- the Middle East
- Switzerland and northern Italy
- independent travel
Recent trips have included Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, UAE, Italy, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, the US, Palestine, Israel and Lebanon, all on commission for national newspapers, international magazines and/or broadcast.
Forthcoming trips – also on commission – include Egypt, Jordan and Sweden.
