I’m a travel writer, freelance journalist, fiction writer and storyteller.
My first book, Walking the Woods and the Water – an account of my walk across Europe in the footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor – will be published by Nicholas Brealey Publishing in March 2014. Updates here.
My articles have appeared in The Economist, The Guardian, New Internationalist, Resurgence, Geographical, World Conservation and other publications. Read a selection here. I also made this documentary for BBC Radio 4.
My short stories are mostly here. Have a browse.
I also work as co-editor for the Dark Mountain journals, and editor of their blog.
