    Mini Bio

    Always been an active and sporty kind of kid, it was no surprise that I enrolled into a sport college in the Netherlands and it was here that I was introduced to the great outdoors on a 2 month work placement in Northern Ireland. On return I quickly realised that for someone who loves the mountains, the Netherlands is just a tad to flat, and several years later in 2006 I started a job at the Outward Bound Ullswater in Cumbria to really focus on getting the right qualifications.This was my springboard to my now career working with young people and adults, either in the UK or further a field.

    Place to Play

    I am very lucky to still live on the edge of the Lake District National Park, so the mountains and lakes are right on my doorstep and easy to access to explore either on bike, foot or on a paddle board.

    Within easy reach lies Scotland and many adventures have taken place in this stunning part of the UK and there is so much more to explore.

    Not a lot of people know this

    I absolutely LOVE liquorice, even the triple salty ones!

    Experience Read More

    I have led many high altitude treks in Tanzania, North Peru and Morocco, and closer to home I love leading walking tours in either the Alps or UK.

    The people who I have been lucky to be working with is very diverse, people of all walks of life, young and old with their own stories to tell!

    My many personal trips always contain an element of adventure or challenge, and led me to scramble along the GR20 in Corsica, circumnavigate the Netherlands on a bike and summit Mt. Elbrus in Russia to name a few.
