    Mini Bio

    As a teenager, I was very interested in travel and being physically active. By seeking out experiences that met these interests I found my way into a lifestyle of outdoor adventure and expeditions. I have spent most of my working life trying to become an outdoor educator and have been privileged to hold numerous roles in the UK and internationally that provided me with this opportunity. I focus my time on sea kayaking and hiking as they are a great mix of my preferences of self-sufficiency, simplicity and situatedness.

    Place to Play

    Innerleithen or Torridon for mountain biking. Anglesey or Western Scotland for sea kayaking. I really enjoy the changeable weather in Scotland, no matter what is going on the land here is always dramatic and atmospheric.

    Not a lot of people know this

    Inuits would decide the width of their kayak by placing two fingers either side of their hips. This is a lot narrower than many modern designs.
