I have been hiking, running and rock climbing in the mountains for over 20 years. It made perfect sense for me to become an International Mountains Leader and share this passion with others. Since 2014, I have been leading groups of walkers and runners in the UK, the Alps and occasionally the Himalayas.
When I’m not guiding, I work as a researcher in nutrition and food security. They are two completely different jobs and I really value the variety.
Favourite Place to Play
I live in the beautiful Lake District, and I have been up all of the Wainwrights at least once. This national park is my local playground.
Further north, I love exploring Scotland. One of my favourite adventures ever was walking the Cape Wrath Trail, a long distance hike up the west of the Highlands from Fort William to Cape Wrath.
Not a lot of People Know This
I love techno music and dancing!
