Mountaineer, rock climber, adventurer, hiker, traveler, freelance outdoor instructor, aspiring British Mountain Guide, professional poker play and blogger. This is me.
In 2016 with very little knowledge or experience I completed the 825km Camino de Frances which was – and continues to be – one of the greatest achievements of my life. This experience opened my eyes to the outdoor world and the opportunities it has to offer and for the first time, I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. It took me another 2 years, but finally I gathered up the courage to take the plunge and quit the 9-5 in order to pursue the life I wanted. I now spend my time travelling and adventuring while making money as a freelance outdoor instructor and poker player.
Since the camino I have trekked the Georgian mountains, completed the 150km Beacons Way, hiked the Niagara section of the Bruce trail and have continued to explore the incredible scenery we have here in the UK through climbing and trekking. I have travelled both alone and with friends but also with clients of all ages under my instruction. It has been an incredible few years and I am looking forward to working with more people and companies in the future.
In the next year I hope to progress my dream to become a British Mountain Guide by developing my winter, alpine and skiing skills. As well as this I will be continuing my blog and adding to the ever growing list of resources available to you on this site.
Please get in touch if you would like to work with me, I look forward to hearing from you!
