Freelance travel writer and broadcaster
I am a freelance travel writer with 30 years experience in television, 19 of which were were with Travel Channel International, the leading global travel broadcaster, where I was responsible for award-winning documentary-style travel programmes. Prior to this I was a celebrity booker and have met everybody from Dame Edna Everage to Donald Trump!
I am one of the best connected people in the travel industry and have visited over 100 countries, aiming to get four new passport stamps every year. I specialise in writing for the 50+ market (I am a Silver Tier Writer for Silver Travel Adviser) along with active travel, festivals and local culture. I also love to ski and contribute to PlanetSKI and The Skier and Snowboarder. Other outlets include The Cultural Voyager, About My Generation, Active Traveller, Just About Travel and Selling Travel. Although I don’t have a specific blog of my own I post on The Huffington Post and am a guest blogger for Tiki Chris, Manned up, Mums do Travel and Travel Matters.
I am also a member of The British Guild of Travel Writers and when not getting of the beaten track and being as adventurous as possible divide my time between London and visiting my 12 god-children around the UK.
