Mini Bio

I moved to North Wales to study, and became an avid rock climber and mountain walker. Nowadays I tend to opt for running, hiking, bike touring, and swimming in whatever water I can find. Having climbed, walked and bike toured in many countries, Scotland has to be the highlighted top of many of these adventures, from running in the Rum Cuillins, cycling the Applecross peninsula, climbing the in-accessible pinnacle on the Skye Cuillins and finding a remote loch for a dip.

However, there is nothing like coming home from adventures and pottering in my garden in North Wales with a lovely view of northern Eryri (Snowdonia).

I have worked as a Mountain Leader in North Wales for over 10 years, and more recently all over the UK leading walks, as well as some overseas trips. I have worked as a field teacher and as Access Warden for my local council, in particular on promoted walking routes.

I have a particular interest in plants which has led me to work as a botanist surveying remote parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

I also work as a gardener when at home in Wales.
