Chris grew up in the Solomon Islands, with a pet cockatoo and a habit of wandering off into the forests of Guadalcanal. Upon returning to the UK he studied geography at Royal Holloway University of London. Since joining Geographical in 2014, he has travelled the world reporting on important geographical stories, from forest restoration in Italy to preserving ancient rock art in Australia, tortoise conservation in the Galápagos Islands to protecting raptor migrations in Georgia. He is the author of three books: Atlas of Untamed Places (nominated for a 2018 Edward Stanford Travel Writing Award), Globalography and Subterranea.
