    Climber | Adventurer | Tea Drinker

    Mini Bio

    I am a passionate rock climber, hill walker and mountaineer and enjoy nothing more than a big adventure in the mountains. I have been working in the outdoor industry for 10 or more years, since graduating from a degree in Outdoor Education, and have been lucky enough to work across the UK and overseas. Despite lots of fun trips overseas I have always been drawn back to the Scottish Highlands.

    Places to Play

    I have a real soft spot for the Northwest Highlands, and in particular Torridon. Properly wild spaces where the mountains rise out of the sea.

    Not a lot of people know this

    I love to spend time cooking and baking. An adventurous lifestyle requires plenty of good fuel.

    Experience Read More

    Since graduating from a degree in Outdoor Education, I have spent the last 10 years guiding, instructing and coaching adventure activities in the UK and overseas.

    My work has taken me to many wonderful places around the world, from ski seasons in Japan and Canada to climbing adventures in the European Alps, New Zealand and North America. I started my career as a Jack of all trades but in the past 5 years have found a real passion for climbing and mountaineering and have specialised in this area.

    Biggest Adventure Read More

    Alpine Climbing in the Swiss Alps. Three 4000m peaks in two days and a breathtaking east to west traverse of the Breithorn will stay with me for a really long time. Alpine starts (very early) and many hours on the go and in an exposed position made for an amazing adventure.

    Specialist Subject Read More

    I like to consider myself a naturalist (very different to a naturist). I love all things natural history; geology, landscapes, flora and fauna.
