After five years working at IBM, I headed off to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia. Destined for a year-long adventure in Australia, I cut it short after three months realising that Southeast Asia had everything I was looking for. I returned to Asia and relocated to southern Thailand for 12 months where I taught English.
On my return to the UK, my love of reportage photography turned to photo-journalism and then coupled with my passion for Southeast Asia and first-hand knowledge of the region, Audley became the logical way forward. Since joining Audley in 2007, I have returned and extensively explored Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and more recently Papua New Guinea, topping up my specialist knowledge of the region. I enjoy helping others to see and experience the region’s culture, architecture and diversity, which still captivates me.

I'll never forget when…
I was fortunate enough to be in the ancient city of Bagan with Audley the night before my birthday.
I had been sat on the terrace of my bungalow overlooking a lily pond and the many surrounding Buddhist temples when the sun slowly sank behind the mountain range in front of me, casting a beautiful reflection of the silhouetted temples through the warm orange sky.
