Born in Dover, England, I became disillusioned with the rat race and began travelling in 1997. On my first round the world trip I discovered a passion for travel, photography and scuba diving. Since then I have spent a total of five years on the road, become a diving instructor and semi-professional photographer along the way. I prefer to go it alone, enjoying the flexibility that comes with travelling solo. I've clocked up 48 countries so far, and still have so much left to see. . . .
