HOWDY!


Thanks for swinging by my little spot on the WWW. I’ve been travelling full time for the past two years as a photographer and I think it’s fair to say I am an addict, 47 countries and counting and not looking to slow down any time soon!


Whether you are after travel tips, ways to save money, factual destination guides or stories from the road I am to share the best of the world here for you to get your next dose of travel inspiration. From shoot outs and samba lessons in the Favelas of Rio, learning to love Bali like a local or trekking Glaciers in Iceland, I want to help you make the most of any trip. Say hey on Instagram or throw me a Skype if you want help to hash out some plans…


I love to put people before places, emotion and experiences above things, search out stories and try and promote social good in this world. Hopefully catch you for a beer on the road sometime soon!
