I've spent time here in the UK & abroad having adventures in various places including open canoe expeditions on the Swedish Lakes systems, climbing Via Ferrata in Europe and going on walking & mountain bike trips in the Alps & Dolomites along with trips here in the UK & Canada too.

I have experience in delivering NICAS and GCSE courses for schools and local authorities. I'm also a tutor for the MT Hill skills courses and a trainer and assessor for the Lowland Leader and Hill and Moorland Leader awards.I also am a course director for NNAS bronze & silver navigation awards.

I'm qualified in teaching, management and I'm a former Princes Trust Team leader, with experience of youth groups, DofE Assessing and Supervising, adult & charity roups, teambuilding & leadership activities.

My hobbies include cycling and im an avid fan of Fat biking and bikepacking, going off on adventures all over on 2 wheels. I've completed the Coast to Coast cycle trail on several occasions. I volunteer for the BMC and I'm one of their Hillwalking Representatives too.

I hold the summer Mountain Leader Award, SPA , Climbing Wall Award, Climbing Wall Abseil Award as well as the British Cycling Mountain Bike leaders award and have completed my Winter ML training which I'm currently working towards assessment. 

Over the next few seasons I aim to finally go and complete my paddling qualifications and do more canyoning!
