I'm a freelance travel writer and photographer from Middlesbrough, although I've spent a fair amount of time in Spain, living in Seville and Barcelona. These days, I potter between London, Devon and Newcastle.
My preference is to spend at least a month in a place to get to know it more intimately – drinking in spit-and-sawdust bars, breaking bread with locals and getting to know anyone who'll talk to me. The places I know best are Seville, Granada, Jerez, Cádiz, Tarifa, Barcelona, Chicago, Porto, Lisbon, Newcastle and Madeira.
I've written first-person narrative features, roundups, hotel reviews, guides and profile pieces for various national outlets, including The Guardian, Telegraph.co.uk, BA High Life, Independent.co.uk, Condé Nast Traveller, Time Out and easyJet Traveller. I also edit the travel section for The London Economic part-time.
