I am a London-based writer, photographer and bike racer.
I have been obsessed with cycling since I was a teenager and have somehow managed to make a career out of that obsession.
Whilst studying for my degree in Sports Science and Physiology at Leeds University, I worked part-time at one of Yorkshire's biggest bike shops, Chevin Cycles in Otley. After graduation I moved back south and by a roundabout way, with an NCTJ post-graduate journalism qualification under my belt, I ended up working at Future Publishing across all three (at the time: MBUK, What MTB and Cycling Plus) of its cycling titles. It was whilst working in Bath that I first picked up a camera, a cast-off Canon EOS 1n film camera from Steve Behr.
Since 2011 I have been Editor of Privateer magazine - privateer.cc - having previously worked for MBR magazine for six years.
