Originally from Australia, I love the outdoors and exploring. Having lived in Scotland, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, I currently call Western Australia home, together with my family. Nine years in Southeast Asia has provided opportunities to roam the region and beyond.


My marine and environmental background and love of travel combine to offer unique insights for nature-based travel and environmental freelance writing.
