Writer, editor, proofreader and African travel blogger
I am a freelance writer, photojournalist, blogger, editor and proofreader. As a travel writer, I have walked through the Kalahari with a San tracker, camped under the stars in the bare stillness of the Richtersveld, and driven along the Roof of Africa in the high mountains of Lesotho. I have breakfasted in the Okavango Delta with a herd of elephants, walked among the wild horses of the Namib Desert and felt the spray of the Victoria Falls on my face.

- I have won more than ten Specialist Press Association Pica Awards for writing and editing.
- My book A Walk in the Park: travels in and around South Africa's national parks was published in 2009 and the updated 2nd edition published as an e-book in 2015.
