I’m a Sydney based travel journalist addicted to roughty-toughty off-track adventure and exploring on my bike.
My quest for a good travel story has involved venturing into post-conflict Afghanistan to join a pioneering expedition across the Pamir Mountains, searching for rideable mountain bike tracks in the Ethiopian Highlands, being rescued by nomads in Kyrgyzstan’s Talas Range, sleeping in a swag next to a croc-infested billabong and having my smalls rummaged through with the muzzle of a Kalashnikov.
The fact that I had almost completed Australia’s longest off-road bike trail when I got sidetracked by an award-winning bottle of Shiraz reveals my weak yet classy streak and proves I won’t turn my nose up at a luxury assignment.
On a more formal note, I qualified in Journalism, studied media law and specialised in travel writing at the London School of Journalism. My articles and photographs have been published in national newspapers and magazines in the UK and Australia. That’s enough of the serious stuff.
