Having worked in the outdoors for over 15 years I remain passionate, still learning about the environment that we live in which never fails to fascinate me.
At school I was always disinterested in academic studies but loved to challenge myself physically and accepted dares with relish! When I left school I drifted for many years not knowing where I fitted in, ending up working in the family business for 20 years. Whilst planning my escape I was introduced to a course at a local college and decided to go for it. That was the start of my love for climbing, kayaking and mountaineering. I was 39 years young.
Over the years I have worked for schools, colleges and overseas expedition companies, training and guiding all over the world from Africa to Malaysia and the Himalayas including solo treks to various regions of Europe.
I discovered climbing in Spain about 12 years ago and return every winter which reveals to me more of this magnificent area, Costa Blanca, where every day is an adventure, and the climate in winter is ideal for walking and climbing.
