I am a freelance writer and journalist based in the indigenous Maya town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto in the Yucatán Peninsula. With more than a decade of experience in Mexico and Central America, I have authored and updated dozens of bestselling guidebooks, including titles from Footprint’s legendary Latin America series. My specialisms include environmental journalism, creative nonfiction, features and travel writing. My interests include Latin American history, tropical ecology, indigenous culture, counter-mapping, videography and street photography. I recently completed a Certificate of Higher Education in Environment with the Open University and am working part-time towards a bachelor’s degree in International Studies.
