Plus an armada of publications you won’t know and whose names I forget.
Raised around London, I wrote my first novel at the age of 5 before diversifying into the media. A recovering print journalist, I’ve explored much of SE Asia and every subject from terrorism to hairdryers. If I have specialisms, they are enterprise, travel and books. I have a degree in writing studies from Middlesex University and a diploma in journalism from the London College of Communication [internships at the Guardian and Independent].
I contribute regularly to Fairfax Digital small business pages and the same media firm’s career pages. Besides, I write for the Adrenalist [Unilever], whose patron is Bear Grylls. Several thousand of my stories lurk in the paywalled archive of Asia Pacific’s leading English language newspaper, the South China Morning Post.
Travel to over 20 countries (England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, Germany, Spain, Holland, Finland, Estonia, Italy, Cyprus, North America, Australia [inc Tasmania], Bali, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia [inc Borneo], Brunei, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Lao PDR).
