I’m a surfer, photographer, traveller and general beach bum from Devon in the UK. I headed to Australia in 2009 for my first taste of backpacking and haven’t really stopped since then! I’m currently on the road with no real end date and no reason to return to England!

Get to know me in 10 Questions

Best known for; curly hair and being a surf bum

Best travel moment; Probably living in a van in Australia, best decision EVER

Worst travel moment; Breaking my face on my surfboard in Byron Bay, not fun!

Top travel tip; don’t just travel… write about it too and you get everything free!

What are the top 5 items in your backpack? My iDevices (yes I’m counting them as one item!), my Canon 7D, travel plug adaptor, external hard drive and my GoPro

Don’t tell my mum but…. I ended up in an arty nudist film when i ran out of money whilst backpacking!

Best way to meet new people on the road? Get messed up and make some bad decisions!

Your one travel regret… Spending too much time in Thailand this year and not exploring more of Asia

Your most anticipated bucket list item?  It was my live aboard surf charter in Indo, however I ticked that one off the list a few months ago. Now I guess it’s shark cage diving…that would be EPIC!

Current travel plans… I’m currently surf coaching in Morocco until March 2013. From there it’s onward to NZ in early 2013, and after that?! …well that’s going to be as much a surprise to me as it will be to you!
