Mini Bio

Originally hailing from Yorkshire, I’m now based in Northumberland. Climbing , trekking and travelling has taken me from the Gritstone crags of my youth to wild and remote areas in Britain and Ireland, Europe, North America, Bolivia, Nepal and Patagonian Ice Cap.

I work in a variety of outdoor roles and environments, delivering outdoor activities, educational/learning programmes to a diverse client range including – schools and young people, sports teams, learning and physical disability groups, military, corporate team building, stag and hen parties, families and individuals.

I’m a qualified Summer and Winter Mountain Leader, John Muir Award Leader, Bushcraft and Wilderness Living Skills Instructor, member of Mountain Training Association and Institute of Outdoor Learning, First Aid qualified and about to complete Wilderness Guide training programme.

Qualifications need to be backed up with experience, you have to be ‘out there’. As a novice 15-year-old wannabe mountaineer I first visited England’s highest summits in the Lake District – 42 years later I’m leading groups through those same mountains and dales and it’s still as enjoyable.

Not a lot of people know this

I’m an accomplished engraving artist.
Favourite joke – ‘Orange for a head’…. Please ask.

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.
