About Me

I've been writing professionally for 10 years (after a postgraduate degree in Broadcast Journalism) and have had my work published in over 40 magazines and newspapers including: Telegraph, Metro, Guardian, GQ, Independent, Stuff Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Red Bulletin, Red Bull, BA High Life Magazine, Easyjet Traveller, Men's Health, Runner's World, Cyclist Magazine, Cycling Plus, Triathlete's World, 220 Triathlon, Outdoor Fitness, Outdoor Enthusiast, and many more.

I specialise in adventure/outdoor journalism thanks to the symbiotic lifestyle I have between my career and that of an elite level adventure athlete. 

I've compete in hundreds of adventurous endurance challenges – whether that be tackling the world’s toughest ironman distance triathlon, running ultra marathons around Mont Blanc, cycling the length and breadth of the country or swim running across islands in Sweden’s Archipelago. 

But it means that I write with passion and enthusiasm for my subject – which essentially involves getting out of my comfort zone and exploring the world through adventure sports. And most importantly, I rarely write about anything I’ve not experienced.

I'm the author of two books - 50 Races to Run Before you Die (2016) and Go! An inspirational Guide to getting Outside and Challenging Yourself.

BA High life Magazine - Jersey: Around the Rock in a Day

"The rise of adventure races has led people across the globe to push themselves, and their bank balances, to the limit. But how about taking it back to basics and inventing your own marathon? Tobias Mews took a day trip to Jersey to run 26.2 miles in a day and still make it back to Gatwick by dinnertime" This is an idea I pitched to BA Highlife Magazine to encourage people to take day flights to new places, with the idea of setting a challenge whilst there.

Red Bulletin - Hard to Beat: The Glen Coe Skyline

I was commissioned by Red Bulletin (readership of more than 1 million) to head over to the depths of Scotland to write about one of the world's most iconic and technical skyrunning races - the Glen Coe Skyline. The end result was a 3000 word piece.

Cyclist Magazine: Marmotte Grand Fondo Pyrenees

The Marmotte Grand Fondo Pyrenees has a fearsome reputation. I was commissioned to write about it's inaugural event - one that had me cycle up and down 5 Hors Category cols, two climbs up the Tourmalet.
