I'm a full-time writer with an interest in adventure travel and sports. I was born in England and grew up in South Africa. Although I now live in Germany with my girlfriend, I go away for a few months each winter travelling in warmer climes or sailing. To date I have been to 34 countries on 4 continents. I am also an experienced yachtsman and diver, and have spent time working on eco-building projects in the past.
I have lived in sustainable communities in the UK, Spain and Holland and have experience with many sustainable technologies such as wind and solar power, eco-friendly building techniques and organic gardening.
