My story

I always knew what I wanted to do: I wrote and illustrated my first book, The Family’s Adventures when I was six and started freelancing for outdoor magazines and websites as soon as I graduated (first-class honours in English Literature and Language). For the past five years I’ve been Assistant Editor of BMC Summit, the UK’s most widely read outdoor magazine, which focusses on mountain sports. I’m also Editor of the Outdoor Adventure Guide, the summer sister of Fall-line Skiing magazine. It’s a fun, very British take on camping, bushcraft and adventuring. These are both freelance positions and I also write for other outdoor magazines and websites.

My work

I’m an outdoor storyteller. I love exploring cultures and landscapes, delving into outdoor issues like the ethics of down production, and bringing the stories of inspiring people to light, like Danny Macaskill, Robert Macfarlane and Hazel Findlay. I’ve been a gear editor for one publication or another for over ten years now. I enjoy commissioning work from my contemporaries, too.

My services

A perfectionist editor and writer, I work hard to earn the testimonials you’ll see below. Feel free to contact me if you are a magazine editor looking for words and photographs on any outdoor subject. I also occasionally take on copywriting and PR work – past clients include Inov8, Jagged Globe and Sheffield Adventure Film Festival.
