Me in 3 – Passionate, Positive, Personable

Place to Play – Cannot beat the wild north west of Scotland for a climbing or mountaineering adventure in summer or winter conditions.

Not a lot of people know this – I have completed several ultra marathons and hope to enter the marathon des sables in the future.

Mini Bio – After completing a degree in environmental science I started working in the outdoor industry and haven’t looked back since. I have lived and worked in the mountains of the UK for the last ten years.

My main passions of climbing and mountaineering have lead me on adventures all over the world and I also enjoy running and cycling.

I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to take groups out into these wild places to share their magic with me.
