Freelance Content Writer

Damned Good.

About Me

I’m a freelance adventure writer, with a passion that goes far beyond the ordinary for outdoor sports, being amongst mountains and getting sand between my toes. I like to use my knowledge of the outdoors, and the many years I have spent exploring the wild places of the UK and afar, to write eloquent and engaging conversational pieces about interacting with adventure.

I currently write for ThirtySquare, about surfing and cold water sports, and Welan, an outdoor clothing company and sheep sanctuary. I also write at Type 2 Adventure, and have bylines in Hype Hunter, Digital Teesside and TUXtra.

Bringing the outside in is what I do best. If I’m not writing, I’m probably knee deep in mud or saltwater. I’m always open to exploring new ways to appreciate the outdoors, and want to inspire others to join me. That is the primary focus of my work, after educating and informing.
