About me

I’m a photographer and writer specialising in capturing authentic food and travel experiences, unique ways of life, cultures, and traditions.
My goal is to provide readers with immersive content that inspires curious travellers to go further and dig deeper.

I’ve worked for many amazing clients including National Geographic Traveller Food, JRNY, The Sunday Times, Whetstone Magazine, Eater, The Infatuation, Lidl, Tesco, Pernod Ricard to name a few.

I am a full-time traveller and I live nomadically.
However, London and Rome are the places I will always return to and call home.
