Climate change and environmental stories, from the Darién Gap to Antarctica
I’m a writer and photographer of climate, environment and mountain stories. I’ve been based in the Chilean Andes above Santiago since 2014.
My writing is brazenly independent and draws on scientific understanding from MSc studies in Carbon Management. It draws extensively on interviews with scientists, researchers and policy makers – meeting them in the jungles of the Darién Gap or personally leading an expedition to collect snow samples from a 6000m Andean summit to help further understanding of black-carbon contamination. My stories speak truth to power when necessary whilst being sensitive to the subtleties of developing stories.
I have investigated big industry environmental damage in the Chilean fishing industry; trawled through environmental policy statements and held politicians to account on their carbon economics at IPCC climate conferences.
If there is a story to be told from the field, I’ll join a road block to report on air pollution or slink through wolf habitat in Sweden to investigate rewilding.
Currently I am interviewing young people for a investigative story about the millenial climate uprising of 2018. I’m also photographing and reporting on Chile’s progress to pass the Ley de Montaña (Law of the Mountain), whilst section hiking and documenting the 3000K Greater Patagonian Trail – aka the world’s longest trespass – from my base in Santiago, Chile.
