What I do

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. After graduating with first-class honours in English Literature and Language, I started freelancing for outdoor magazines and websites, and I’ve been busy ever since. I’m now Assistant Editor of BMC Summit, the UK’s most widely read outdoor magazine. 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 adventuring. I also freelance 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 and editing work from my contemporaries, too.

My services

A perfectionist editor and writer, I work hard to earn the positive feedback you’ll see in the testimonials 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.
