Patrick is a writer, editor and expedition guide based in Melbourne, Australia. He has worked in a professional capacity with brands including Intrepid Travel, Lonely Planet, Vinomofo and Dan Murphy’s, while his own writing has featured in Going Down Swinging, Global Hobo, Pilgrim Magazine and more.

As a guide, he has led expeditions in Peru, India, Cambodia and Vanuatu, worked in outdoor education in the UK and China, and taught SCUBA diving in Spain, Honduras and Australia. He has also guided coaches around Europe and sailboats along the Turkish coast, the latter of which saw him spend most of his time wearing pirate paraphernalia, loud shirts and subtle eyeliner. He has never felt more at home.
