I'm a 22-year-old adventurer, photographer, and writer.  

I've recently returned from an expedition to Sumatra, where we conducted the first biodiversity survey of an unexplored forest, attempted (read "failed") to make the first ascent of the 3080m Mount Kurik, and crossed the island on foot. 

In 2015 I spent 2 months walking coast to coast across South India from the Bay of Bengal to the Arabian Sea. We lived on 75p a day, slept in fields frequented by tigers, and faced the monsoon with no tent (my fault). 

In 2014 I cycled to the Arctic circle - following the fjords and coast of Norway. 

I've written articles for Sidetracked, Say Yes to Adventure, GatherOutdoors, and Maptia.com; and given talks at the Royal Geographic Society, TEDx Edinburgh, and the London Mountaineering Society.
