about us

Fresh ideas, experienced hands.

We create compelling short films, images and narrative stories to help you forge a closer, more emotional and more rewarding relationship with your clients. Great Escapations may be a relatively new venture but we have a creative vitality, professional approach and depth of commercial and creative experience that will deliver immediate value.

Great Expectations, one of Charles Dickens’ greatest novels, is enriched with interesting and memorable characters encountered by young Pip on his journey through life. We believe travel in the 21st century should be equally interesting and rewarding, and the people you meet along the way will be an integral part of the experience. For your chosen destinations, we will bring those people - and their landscapes, history, culture and food - to vivid life for you and for your clients.

After a long career in finance, I am finally doing what I should have done with my life.

Write. And travel.

I now blog at JustRetiring.com and I create compelling Great Escapations content for anyone who likes insightful travel writing, with a deep focus on people, food, history, culture and landscapes, to accompany our evocative films and photographs.

I am also a freelance writer and the Literary Editor for Silver Travel Advisor, and a Director of TripFiction.

With a ‘sleeves rolled up’ attitude and ‘easy to work with’ style I have over 20 years of experience working with corporates, fmcg, travel & leisure, government and charities.
