Mountaineer, rock climber, adventurer, traveler, outdoor instructor, activity support worker, poker player and blogger. This is me.
In 2016, with little preparation and no hiking experience, I completed the 825km Camino de Frances. This challenge, which seemed impossible at the start, opened my eyes to the importance of leaving your comfort zone. My life would never be the same again.
In 2018 I quit my unfulfilling job to start working outdoors and pursue my other hobbies more seriously. My current role is within a crisis care centre where I utilise my outdoor skills and experience to help young people turn their lives around and reach their potential. I continue to spend the rest of my time mountaineering, blogging and playing poker where I push myself to be better everyday.
Since the camino I have trekked the Georgian mountains, completed the 150km Beacons Way, hiked the Niagara section of the Bruce trail and explored the UK to its fullest through climbing, trekking and scrambling. In the next year I hope to progress as a mountaineer by developing my winter, alpine and skiing skills. At the same time I hope to continue to share my experiences along the way via my blog and by adding to the ever growing list of resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to work with me, I look forward to hearing from you!
