Place to play – Although I love many places in the world, the variety of Northern Scotland will always draw me in. The remoteness, the variety and the quiet. From surfing on sandy beaches, to climbing above the sea, roaming about the hills or sitting quietly at a wee harbour with a sketch book and a flask of tea (whisky), there truly is something for every mood.

Not a lot of people know this  The word “Arctic” comes from the Greek word “Arktos” meaning “Bear” . I’m a trapeze artist in training.

Mini Bio – My passion for the outdoors started at a young age, when I would “disappear” whilst playing on the beaches around St David’s and my parents would find me half way up the cliffs playing at “being a climber”. They finally got sick of it and sent me to an outdoor centre for the day to do it safely. I then formally started my outdoor career at 16, having had enough of traditional education and haven’t looked back since. My career has taken me to a large variety of locations including The Lake District, North Wales, quite a lot of Scotland, Nepal, The Dolomites, Morocco, Kenya and Slovenia. Aviemore has been home for the last few years and I can’t see myself leaving any time soon. My passions lay in teaching people to become well rounded, self-sufficient outdoor practitioners, and inspiring others to enjoy the amazing wild spaces and to see the beauty in the natural world.
