Mini Bio

Originally from the New Forest in the south of England, I’ve been a sales manager for a leading adventure travel company. Prior to that I lived in Thailand & Borneo, where I led trekking, cycling & overland trips throughout South East Asia.

As a keen hiker, biker & photographer, I’ve had several extended periods of time to travel & taken a number of long-distance biking trips. I’ve ridden Lands End to John O’groats, the length of New Zealand & rode from Bangkok to Delhi a few years back.

I’ve led trips internationally since 2004 & throughout Scotland & Northern England since 2012 for Wilderness Scotland. I joined the Wilderness England office team in 2023, as Operations & Guides Co-ordinator. The Lake District is where I call home, which conveniently is a short distance from our headquarters in Kirkby Lonsdale; a fantastic base for accessing the Lakes & Yorkshire Dales.

Favourite Place to Play

The Lake District has always been my favourite playground. Whatever the weather, there’s always plenty to do whether it’s walking, fell running, biking or open-water swimming.
