Background

Seven years ago, I left a twenty-one-year corporate career and began a journey that led me through Europe and Morocco in a twenty-year-old campervan; backpacking right across South Africa; trekking up into the Himalayan mountains, and exploring the busy streets of India.

Along the way, I created a blog about the adventure, which I then turned into a book. That may be a cliché, but I wanted to capture my journey and share out what it was like – the good and the bad. I also wanted to share some of what I’d learnt along the way

In 2018, I set up a landscaping and garden business. I design and build bespoke projects for customers, as well as carry out general garden maintenance. You can view examples of projects here. My background is engineering; project planning; and learning and development. I love being creative and working outdoors. It’s amazing how skills transfer across.

I also work as a travel writer. As well as various articles which have been published, in September 2021 I established a column within the UK’s biggest motorhome and campervan magazine (MMM). After 12 episodes, I have been asked to continue for another year! I enjoy sharing my adventures and this is a great platform to do so.
