After many hot, sticky and sweaty years in Singapore, Shawn made for the cooler but more temperamental climes of Melbourne in 2001. He found his way into Lonely Planet as a book editor in 2006. Since then, he's done two stints as a commissioning editor and has constantly (sometimes successfully) flirted with the Lonely Planet TV. Shawn has penned a dozen LP guides and also co-founded a London-based travel startup Firef.ly. And through it all is his constant mantra while on the road, "I'll try anything and eat anything, at least once."
