About

I have been a journalist for more than 12 years, including nine years working at daily papers in WA where I variously was a chief crime reporter, political correspondent, health reporter, features writer and sports reporter.

I now traverse the world as a photojournalist, contributing words and photos to almost 20 magazines and newspapers across Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, including The BBC, the Australian Financial Review, The Guardian, Travel Talk magazine, Travel Ideas magazine, For the Love of Travel magazine, the South East Asia Globe, Yahoo! and The West Australian newspaper.

I specialise in travel and sport, and my travel writing and photography work has taken me to more than 30 countries.
