Will Roberts
Will Roberts is a journalist currently living in the North East of England and working for The Northern Echo and the Darlington and Stockton Times.
Born in an agricultural area of County Durham, his love for food and travel started at an early age - when he funded school trips to France and Italy by making homemade soup and selling it to his parents' friends.
He is a graduate of the award-winning Journalism Studies course at the University of Sheffield. Upon graduating from Sheffield in 2003, he moved to Taiwan where he combined working as an English teacher with writing food and travel features for the British media.
He started working at The Northern Echo and Darlington and Stockton Times in 2006 and as well as covering the Teesdale area of County Durham, he also writes restaurant reviews, travel pieces and features. Will has traveled extensively throughout Asia, North America and Europe. He is a trained video journalist and a keen photographer.
