Welcome to my site which covers a wide range of subjects that interest me, many of which become the subject of my editorial and photographic work.

For the record, I'm a freelance journalist, photographer and blogger. My work has appeared in many magazines including Canals, Rivers + Boats, Towpath Talk, the Walk magazine website and many others. I've looked at, sailed on, and written about boats of all kinds and sizes. From cross channel ferries to inflatables on rivers and lakes. For some time my main focus has been on the inland waterways. An area that mixes development with tradition - unusual to say the least!

However, my main areas of interest are diverse to include how we can use technology to make people aware of their environment. These are not obvious bedfellows but in today's media-savvy world we need to use all available means to get a story out.
