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.

This is a ‘new’ England we’re being told ahead of today’s first Ashes Test. There’s no doubt England’s ODI side has been overhauled and is more exciting, but has its Test team changed that much?
In the lead-up to the Ashes, there was one clear difference between the sides: Australia’s superior depth of pace options.
Ignore Mitch Marsh’s career batting average of 32. The statistic that really matters is this: since the start of the 2013-14 summer, the all-rounder has made 1257 first-class runs at an average of 52.
Steve Smith’s suitability to batting at three is being questioned in England yet it is the home side who have the biggest problem at first drop for the Ashes.
Mitch Marsh is heaping pressure on Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson has rediscovered his fear factor, and Ryan Harris may have missed his chance.
As I wrote recently, the upcoming Ashes will be a closely fought series. This became even clearer when I compiled a composite Ashes XI and found how even the line-ups were.
