I was brought up in Yorkshire, and thanks to outdoorsy parents enjoyed having adventures on foot, by kayak and under sail all around the British Isles.
Like many guides, I turned to the outdoors after a first career elsewhere. I did a graduate study in the USA and returned to the UK to follow a career in the chemical industry. To keep my sanity(!), I spent all my spare time mountaineering, kayaking and sailing, plus lots of travelling.
Place to Play
Shetland and the Outer Hebrides. They are great places to explore by kayak, bike and on foot.
Not a lot of people know this
I have been fortunate to have been to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands twice……and I’d love to go back a third time!
