About

I have been a reporter for 12 years, and now travel the globe as a travel photojournalist, contributing words and images to about 20 magazines and newspapers across Australia, Europe, the US, Asia and New Zealand.

I contribute to a range of media outlets including CNN, The BBC, The Guardian, The Australian Financial Review, The South China Morning Post, The West Australian, Yahoo! and many travel magazines.

My travel writing and photography work has taken me to more than 30 countries and I've filed pieces for The Roar from countless far-flung locations.

Before becoming a travel photojournalist I spent nine years working at daily newspapers in WA where I variously was a chief crime reporter, political correspondent, health reporter, features writer and sports reporter.
