      Mini Bio

      I hail from New Zealand where I met my Scottish wife. We moved to Scotland in 2010, got married and started a family.

      I’ve always worked in tourism and the outdoors; in my first role I was a commercial jet boat driver in Queenstown and Taupo.

      I’ve always enjoyed mountain biking and have a love of flora and fauna and a growing interest in history and geology. If I’m not out enjoying one of the many trails in my local area I like to be skiing, golfing or even a spot of fishing and I seem to think I have half a clue about single malt whisky and craft/real ale, that must be once I’ve had a couple!

      Enjoying one of the many bike/walking trails in and around the Cairngorms.

      Can juggle 3 apples. When a dog drinks it makes it’s tongue into a scoop to get the maximum amount of water it can, fascinating!


      Adventurer's Stories about Alexander

      Dave and Amanda couldn't have done any better of a job if they tried. They were very knowledgeable. I had trouble on some of the hills and they couldn't have been anymore supportive or encouraging. I can never thank Amanda and Dave for all their help and support. Steve loved having someone to challenge him. He is out riding hills right now practicing for his 206 mile ride in September. You both made this trip excellent and I can never thank you enough for all the great memories and friendship. I'm hoping we can come back and ride with you again. Thank you

      On a scale of 1 to 10, I give Neil and Paul a 15! I could not have been happier with both of them as guides for our trip.
