Currently based in Hoi An, Vietnam, I’m a freelance content creator. I ghostwrite content for a number of large websites as well as co-managing my own website: Whilst writing and websites pay the bills, photography is my true passion and prior to Covid-19, I ran photography workshops and tours in Central Vietnam.

In the past I’ve worked both in-house and freelance for a number of NGOs and have successfully completed filming and photography projects in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries.
