Place to play – The Cairngorms National Park is on our doorstep and what better place to live and work with great biking, hiking, skiing, ski touring, running trails and more.

Not a lot of people know this – I’m the least local member of the team having been born in South Africa, grew up in England, lived in Australia but now resident in Scotland!

Mini Bio – I first moved to Scotland on a whim back in the early 2000’s and immediately fell in love with the country. It was only about 10 years later when I met my Scottish wife that I moved here for good and now feel very privileged living and working in the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish highlands.

My love of the outdoors has only grown since I moved up here, along with my collection of outdoor equipment, although with two young children, focus of my activities is at times somewhat more gentle than it used to be!

I’m inspired by my surroundings everyday and this serves me well in in my work with Wilderness Scotland as I believe everyone should experience this amazing country!
