Cover StyleCity Sydney9780500210208_15201Between 1998 and 2006 I lived in Sydney, Australia. In 2003, Thames & Hudson commissioned me to write the first edition of StyleCity Sydney, a gorgeous guide to a beautiful city illustrated with over 400 photographs taken by Anthony Webb. In 2006, I researched the Antwerp, Brussels and Lisbon chapters for StyleCity Europe.


I was commissioned by Patricia Schultz to update the Japan, Russia and Malaysia sections of the 2nd edition of 1000 Places to See Before You Die, published in October 2011.

Between 1998 and 2000 I worked on four titles in AA Publishing’s Adventure Travellers series: Southeast Asia, India, Australia & New Zealand and South America. These titles were co-published by Frommer’s in the USA. My adventures included learning to dive in Phuket, Thailand, exploring the Andaman Islands, India, climbing a volcano and white-water rafting in Chile, fishing for piranha along the Amazon, and a camel trek across the Australian outback.
