About Me

I’ve authored, co-authored or contributed to 30 travel books for Rough Guides, Insight Guides, DK Eyewitness and Berlitz, on destinations as far afield as Indonesia, Nepal, Oman, Mexico, Tokyo, Thailand and Spain. I regularly write articles for a variety of travel publications, online and in print. My portfolio can be found here.

I’m a Gold Standard-qualified NCTJ-accredited journalist, hold a 1st-class honours degree in Comparative Religion & Social Anthropology from the University of Manchester, and have an MA in South Asian Area Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.
