TouchScreenTravels was founded by two tennis friends in Edinburgh in 2016. The idea was to bring together their
expertise in travel and tech to develop independent and user-friendly travel apps for smartphones and tablets, as
well as developing an intuitive platform for established writers to publish their work.
A freelance travel writer since 1998, Christian has written or co-written some twenty guidebooks, two travel apps
and a host of related articles for magazines, travel websites and UK newspapers. Clients have included Rough
Guides, Dorling Kindersley, AOL, Tripadvisor, Ink Media and UK newspapers The Telegraph, The Independent and The
Sunday Times. In North America he's covered much of Canada (particularly the Rockies) and Colorado; in Europe he
has focused mainly on Germany (particularly Berlin), Austria, Scotland and Tenerife. Even when not working he
likes to explore – usually on one of his ten bicycles.
