I’m a photojournalist who’s always roaming the world in search of my next story. 2019 was a big year which saw me write a feature piece on the forced displacement of Palestinians in the Jordan Valley. I also completed 2 short stories in Senegal and did a piece on a Saharan freight train, which required spending 26 hours on a… you guessed it, freight train.

My writing is sometimes light, sometimes serious, but always deeply thoughtful, considered and heavily researched. I’m always looking to link up with passionate people and organisations; if you have ideas for a collaboration please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
