Me in 3 – Dedicated: Culture-vulture: Northern
Place to Play – A whole spectrum really, from the back garden and the jewels of my local city, Edinburgh (Arthur’s Seat, Water of Leith), to the wilds of Assynt and Skye.
Not a lot of people know this – I was Burnley under-14s table tennis doubles champion

I’ve been fortunate to work in places of nature, grandeur and tranquility, and in roles that introduce and connect people to wild places throughout the UK. This has included the Lake District (and Australia) with Outward Bound, Glen Etive with Venture Scotland, and throughout the UK with the John Muir Trust. It’s a privilege to be part of people’s experiences of the outdoors, whether in an incidental, facilitating or a more involved role.
Having done a ‘big trip’ in my youth, I now opt for shorter forays in Scotland and abroad, most recently taking my teenage daughters to India and California – adding another dimension to ‘adventure’. I’m a lapsed distance runner, and I immerse myself in the comedy, theatre and culture of Edinburgh’s Festivals every August.
