I work at the Lonely Planet Melbourne office as a Research Analyst. I re-discovered photography a few years ago, and so I am now a slave to my Nikon when I travel. I like to visit cities more than the countryside. I like to stay at little Spartan hotels when I can afford them, and hostels when I can't.
From whence I came: Born in Kiribati (then known as the Gilbert & Ellice Islands) to a British father and an Australian mother. Spent about eight years on Banaba (formerly known as Ocean Island). Then moved to England for about 12 years, living in Bath, Somerset. Returned to Australia and did an arts undergraduate degree in literature and film. Then an arts postgraduate degree in literature. Began working at LP in 2001 as the marketing dogsbody. Finished Ph.D. in 2002. Began working as Research Analyst in 2003.
Big cities, anywhere
