I am the author of six books, three on travel, one on business and two photo essays. For one year I curated an on-line magazine promoting tourism in Italy.

My latest book is "The Great Guide to Bali" just up on iTunes. (itunes.apple.com/us/book/id1082575596). This is in iBook format, readable on Mac, iPad and iPhone. The ePub/Kindle and PDF versions will be out soon.

My photographs and articles have been published in several travel magazines. Many of my photos are also used in travel websites and even a CD cover! Recently I exhibited in Jakarta in partnership with JW Marriott to promote the ISCO Foundation’s work bringing education to street children. My photos can be licensed for commercial use, so feel free to contact me directly. I just don't use Getty Images, that's all.

I am also the editor and main eBookmaker of No Trees Publishing Ltd, a publisher of digital books (eBooks). We publish everything from training books to children’s books. If you are a budding author, or want to publish your work as an eBook, let me know.

Prior to this, I was an international business director. Since then I have set up a practice advising and coaching companies on how to improve their operational performance.

I am Norwegian-Irish in origin and a real voyaging Viking with discovery in my blood. I was raised and have lived in so many places around the world that in reality I am a true world citizen and feel at home in almost every country in which I happen to land. I am thoroughly in love with life, exploring new places, meeting people and making new friends. I currently split my life between Indonesia and Italy.
