    Mini Bio

    I have always been an active and sporty kid, so it was no surprise that I enrolled in a sports college in the Netherlands. Here, I was introduced to the great outdoors on a two month work placement in Northern Ireland. On return to the Netherlands, I quickly realised that for someone who loves the mountains, the Netherlands is just too flat.

    Several years later, I started a job at The Outward Bound Trust in Ullswater, Cumbria, to really focus on getting qualified. This was the springboard to my current career, working with young people and adults in the UK and further afield.

    Place to Play

    There are so many adventures within easy reach in Scotland – there is so much to explore in this stunning part of the UK.

    Not a lot of people know this

    My new skill to learn is kite surfing.

    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.
