About the Author"My travel writing career began with three fateful trips to West Africa. At the age of 13, while visiting family friends deep in the Guinean bush, witnessing Africa's energy and anarchy was a formative experience. A little over ten years later - having studied in Glasgow and Vancouver, deepened my travel appetite with student jaunts to eastern Europe and Nepal, taken a postgraduate journalism course in London, and worked on magazine features desks - I returned to Africa. This time I went overland - across the Sahara and along the River Niger to Timbuktu. The plan was to fill a bag in the sub-Saharan markets with CDs and cassettes of the wonderful local music. Four months later, having crossed Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia and Mali (in both directions), I got back to London with more than just a bundle of poor-quality tapes. I was now determined to pursue a life of travelling, writing about it, and eventually getting paid for the results. I soon sold an article about staying with Senegalese griot musicians to the Guardian, and set my sights on Australia. After two years in Sydney, writing about travel, music and media for publications including the Australian and Ministry of Sound- and MTV-branded magazines, I landed my first Lonely Planet gig. Given my African experiences, my first LP assignment was to update the Togo and Benin chapters of the West Africa guide. Over the next half-decade, LP jobs in India, Ireland, Canada, America, the UK, Turkey, South Africa, China and Morocco followed. These days, as well as contributing to LP and Time Out guides, I write for worldwide publications from magazines to mobile apps. Following a stint in Istanbul, my girlfriend and I live in Cape Town, from where I regularly venture into Africa and beyond."
