Biography :
I'm a British freelancer writer living in Lyon, France, specialising in travel and the outdoors. Since I started working as a full time freelancer just over a year ago I've written for the BBC, The Independent, Lonely Planet, SUITCASE, The Telegraph and many other publications, and I'm also working on my first guidebook for Bradt Guides.
I speak fluent French andmost of my friends are locals. This leads me to sniff out off-piste stories (sometimes on the pistes). I’ve interviewed a fashion photographer that became a monk, a society of retirees that feast on pig innards for breakfast, and I went running around the rooftops and chimney pots of Paris with a parkour group.
