My Bio 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.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The actual journey in writing, rather than just in photos.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I arranged, financed and travelled the world solo - no backup crew, no passeportout and no corporate sponsorship.

Thats what makes it so enjoyable to view and read, its the unadulterared truth, be it serious, funny or dangerous.
