journalism

schuFrankGotta love those words. As a journalist I’ve written for broadsheet, tabloid, specialist media and the web. Travel and adventure are definite specialties and I’ve written extensively on environment and property too. I’m also a research and media fellow of The Schumacher Institute, a sustainability think tank. My media skills have led to being asked to run various campaigns for organisations, expeditions and publishers. Here are some sample articles.
