Climate change and environmental stories, from the Darién Gap to Antarctica
My writing is brazenly independent and thoroughly researched. It draws extensively on interviews with scientists, researchers and policy makers – often meeting them in the heat of the field. It speaks truth to power when necessary whilst being sensitive to the subtleties of developing stories.
I have investigated big industry environmental damage; trawled through environmental policy statements and held politicians to account on their carbon economics.
I’ve collected Andean snow samples from the summit of the world’s most southerly 6000m mountain and slunk through wolf habitat in Sweden to investigate rewilding.
Currently I am reporting on Chile’s progress to pass the Ley de Montaña (right-to-roam), giving greater access and protection to the Andes mountains. Concurrently I am section hiking and documenting the 3000K Greater Patagonian Trail – aka the world’s longest trespass – that links Santiago with El Chaltén via the Andes mountains.
This October I will be travelling to Eugene Oregon to report on the Juliana vs United States climate change trial.
I am a second year Carbon Management Masters student at Edinburgh University and bring the weight of scientific understanding and scrutiny to the stories I write and photograph.
