Work With Me

When I’m not travelling on the rails (or working on the latest book) I write articles, features and short stories, both from personal experience and also from a historical and geopolitical perspective. I also speak about my adventures. 

I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, the Royal Asiatic Society and the Chartered Institute of Marketing. But more importantly I’m an adventurer who loves to inspire others through my work.

My background is in communication, and I know how to create copy that will deliver exactly what you need to fit the style of your material. I am happy to provide detail of my rates, examples of my work and availability on request. Please do get in touch!
