I’ve written extensively about Naples and the Amalfi Coast, nearby Sorrento and the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, as well as Genoa. I’ve also written features on weekend breaks, copy for photographic collections and architectural walks around London, reviewed films for Time Out’s film section, edited guides to bars and clubs as well as shopping in London, and regularly review restaurants for Time Out’s Eating and Drinking guide.
I’ve taken a train from St Pancras to the Amalfi Coast for the travel pages of Time Out, and written a series of ‘One Day in… ‘ features on the lovely cities of Italy’s Emilia Romagna region – Parma, Modena, Ferrara and Rimini – for luxury magazine Bologna.

I’m also a novice beekeeper and recent convert to the charms of canal-boating.
