My articles and photographs have appeared in publications worldwide, covering everything from exotic food to hiking, literature to interior design.
I have been a long-standing travel news columnist for The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald‘s Traveller section, and regularly contribute features from my travels.
I also write copy for websites such as the dreamy  Snowy Valleys Way, and you can catch my video presentation skills on this travelogue for car manufacturer Peugeot Australia.
I do regular pieces for radio – check out this interview with ABC News Radio, and maybe this podcast with TellMeWhere2Go about a walk in Old Cairo. I chat with ABC Radio’s nationwide evening show, Nightlife, about matters travel, and also the Travel Writers Radio show, which broadcasts on J-Air each Wednesday night.
During 2020, I also wrote a book about Melburnians’ lives spent in lockdown. Together Apart: Life in Lockdown is a collection of experiences accompanied by photography by portrait photographer and friend Jude van Daalen, owner of The Melbourne Portrait Studio. The book has enjoyed widespread media attention, and we continue to exhibit stories and photographs from the book, and conduct author talks across Australia.
