About Me

I’ve authored, co-authored or contributed to nearly 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.
