About me

My published books include Walking the Woods and the Water, Where the Wild Winds Are and a work of gonzo ornithology, The Parakeeting of London. My third travel book, Outlandish, will be published in May 2021. I am also working on a novel and a short story collection.

My articles have appeared in The Guardian, The Economist, New Internationalist, Emergence, Resurgence & Ecologist, Caught By the River, Narratively, Political Insight, Geographical and other publications.

I work as an editor for the Dark Mountain Project, and have contributed writing to many of its issues.
