Modern Exploration



Hello and welcome to my new website. I’m an award-winning modern explorer, social entrepreneur, and environmental photojournalist. Read more about me, explore my expeditions and projects, catch up with my latest news and views on the blog, and check out my upcoming podcast, The Modern Explorers.

This website is still pretty new, and there is a load of stuff from over a decades worth of travel, adventure, and work to go on here. So join me on Instagram Twitter or Facebook to stay up to date, and let me know if you find any digital creepy crawlies that I should know about. Oh, and don’t forget to sign up to the newsletter.
