      Mini Bio

      After a spell in the corporate world in London I decided to find a more rewarding way of life involving a closer connection to the outdoors and to my camera! I produce a lot of the photography and video for Wilderness Scotland and work within the Marketing team.

      I have a real passion for soaking up the peace and personal rewards offered by wild places. I’m a bit of a skiing nut but also getting more into mountain biking through the summer months. I’m lucky enough to have experienced many of the Wilderness Trips and would have to say the Sailing and Walking adventure takes the biscuit for me!

      Place to Play

      The Western Isles. I love getting out to Skye and the Small Isles by boat to explore the intricate coastlines, dramatic peaks, wildlife and the best pubs around.

      Not a lot of people know this

      I am a qualified digger operator after a spell working for a construction company years ago.
