Mini Bio

In my ‘previous life, I was a computer programmer for 20-odd years – I was not as nerdy as some of my colleagues, honest! I spent every day of my spare time and holidays on walking holidays and adventures, both in the UK and all over the world.

In 2018, I switched to guiding and have loved every second of it! I especially like meeting so many different people with different outlooks.

Favourite Place to Play

I’m lucky to live in Cornwall, just a short stroll from the South West Coast Path and a 2 mile long sandy beach. I love walking the Cornish coast in all weathers, especially if there’s a proper pub, a pasty, or a cream tea at the end of it (preferably all 3, please).

Not a lot of People Know This

One of my earliest adventures was climbing Helvellyn in the Lake District with my mum back in 1992 – we had no idea and no gear, but we got to the top and back down again in one piece. Our rubbish shoes meant we had to slide down on our bums on all the steep bits, pretending we were admiring the view whenever someone came past. I knew then that I had to go straight back up another mountain but with proper boots and a bit more knowledge!

Biggest Adventure Read More

I’ve visited loads of amazing destinations all over the world. I think my favourite was a four week trip to Nepal trekking to the base camps of Kangchenjunga. Twenty-one nights of camping, only a handful of other trekkers, and only one shower the whole trip – it makes me really appreciate staying in nice hotels now! I still get excited about an en-suite bathroom, although you can’t beat the sight of the stars on a nighttime walk to the toilet tent 4000m up in the Himalayas when it’s -15 degrees.

Make Trip Private

Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
