A sense of adventure often underpins my work as a journalist, which has seen me file agenda-setting stories from around the world for titles such as the BBC, Daily Telegraph and National Geographic Traveller.

Though I specialise in travel and environmental reporting, my portfolio includes in-depth investigative pieces, high-profile interviews and features on anything from crime to cuisine. I have also worked in broadcast journalism, having appeared on shows for BBC Radio 4 and Public Radio International (US).

My articles have been shortlisted for prizes at the Travel Media Awards (2016), the British Travel Press Awards (2012) and the EDF Media Awards (2010).
