Other Projects

I began working as a freelance travel writer in the mid-1990s, when I was commissioned to work on the first edition of a Germany travel guide for the international guidebook publisher Lonely Planet.

Over the years I’ve been coordinating author and co-author on numerous other travel guides in the Lonely Planet series, including Germany editions (1, 2, 3, 5, 6 & 7), Austria (editions 5, 6 & 7), Vienna (editions 6 & 7), Berlin (excursions, edition 6), Western Europe (editions 4 & 5), Central Europe (edition 3), Europe on a Shoestring (edition 1), Russia, Ukraine & Belarus (edition 2), Russia (editions 6 & 7), and Trans-Siberian Railway (editions 5 & 6). My short stories have appeared in the travel literature anthologies Unpacked and Unpacked Again (Lonely Planet).

Travel writing credits also include work on a trade reference for the 2006 World Cup in Germany, articles published in Conde Nast Traveller, The Age newspaper (Melbourne), New Zealand Herald (Auckland) and Interval World (Asia Pacific/South Pacific/Mandarin), as well as translation of a Rome guidebook for Nelles Verlag (München) and fact checking for National Geographic Traveler on a Berlin guidebook.
