Biography :
My love for exploring the world (and writing about it) comes from a childhood spent gazing longingly at maps and flags. Fast forward a few years, and I studied Modern History and Politics at Royal Holloway, University of London, focusing on global history. My first magazine feature was published before I graduated — it was on a Native American warrior, for History of War magazine.

Since then, I've worked on the editorial teams of BA's High Life, BBC History Revealed, and All About History. I've also written freelance features for many prestigious print and digital outlets.

I particularly relish taking readers to niche and quirky destinations, known to only a few intrepid explorers. I'm a regular contributor to a variety of publications, including Il-Bizzilla (Air Malta's inflight magazine) and Group Travel World. I currently help oversee and edit Future Publishing's bestselling range of travel guides.
