Gillingham, Kent, England

I am a keen photography enthusiast, poet and travel writer.

I have travelled to over 40 countries and in my first photobook there are the best 636 photos covering a round the world journey starting in September 2008 and ending in April 2009.

In 2002 I began to search out epals who wanted to write and possibly meet up.

In 2003 I met my first epal overseas and developed a passion for travel and for writing.

In 2008 I embarked on an epic world tour taking me to over 100 cities in 30 cities around the world.

In 2009 I decided to chase love overseas for the final time and relocated to Beijing in China. Despite numerous assurances the promises made to me were broken so I came back alone and disillusioned with long-distance-relationships.

Having given up on life in Beijing I returned to the UK and once again found employment in a London property firm.

I have currently just finished work on the first part of my travel memoirs, as well as the accompanying photobook.
