      Mini Bio

      Around 20 years ago I picked up one of the magazines in a dentist waiting room and saw an article on sea kayaking on the West Coast of Scotland. I decided I would try it, now 20 years later I am still as passionate about sea kayaking and the outdoors.

      Although my main passion is for sea kayaking, I am as equally as happy on rivers, lochs and cycling or walking in the outdoors.

      Along with working in the outdoors and sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for it, I have worked for the last decade as a Search and Rescue Mission Coordinator for HM Coastguard. The next time you are listening to a weather broadcast on the Vhf radio from the Coastguard, it could be yours truly broadcasting it.

      Places to Play

      Anywhere there is an interesting coastline with an abundance of caves, wildlife and possibly the occasional coffee shop.  Isle of Skye and Shetland have never disappointed me.

      Not a lot of people know this

      While on a solo Sea Kayaking trip in Norway last year, I was stopped on the water and had my Passport details and Camera pictures checked by gun welding Norwegian Marines. I had mistakenly paddled into the area of a top secret base. It’s not every day you get suspected of being an international spy while out paddling.
