In early February, thousands of people flocked to the isolated mountain headquarters of one of Burma’s largest armed ethnic groups to celebrate Shan National Day.

Stories on the event appeared in Vice, Al Jazeera, and the Southeast Asia Globe. You can catch a glimpse of the action here.

Discover is an annual luxury travel magazine / guide to Cambodia. For the 2014 edition, I took a helicopter to remote jungle temples, sailed to tropical islands, kayaked through a sprawling flooded forest, and kicked back in some of the country’s classiest resorts. Trips taken with my photographer pal Sam from samjamphoto.com can be seen above.

You can read about the helicopter trip here. The flooded forest story can be found here. The full magazine is available online at discover-cambodia.com.

Since November, I’ve been writing for Next City – an American urban affairs magazine. I contribute fortnightly features to its “Resilient Cities” column. Highlights include an interview with legendary Cambodian architect Vann Molyvann, a boat tour through the communities living atop Phnom Penh’s sewage lakes, and a look at how this developing capital established a world-class water supply system.

You can read all of my stories here. The “Resilient Cities” project can be found here.
