My passion for mountains & expeditions started in 2005, spending over 2 months living deep in the remote jungles of Belize.
In the past 12 years I have organised, guided & summited mountains on over 80+ expeditions all over the world as well as gaining qualifications & working freelance/self-employed across the UK in both Summer & Winter. Living in North Wales I live a non stop life of outdoor instructing/guiding/teaching & expedition guiding work. During the year I enjoy work as an MIA & WML in North Wales & Scotland, & spread throughout the year I lead expeditions to all corners of the world through my company Mountain Expeditions. Whilst I have a deep love for dry rock & esoteric summer adventures, winter conditions are where I truly feel at home, whether in Scotland, the Alps or at extreme high altitudes, & on both foot & ski. Winter climbing & skiing are my main passions & I hope to develop my skills in this area or order to become and MIC and potentially IFMGA over the coming years.
Highlights: In spring 2017 & 2018 I guide on the North and South of Everest respectively, with successful summits for my clients. In 2017 I completed the worlds coldest and hardest ultra race – The Yukon Arctic Ultra. My friend and I became the first team ever to complete the 430 mile race on foot. In 2018 I organised and guided a world record breaking speed round of the famous '7 Summits', smashing the record by 9 days.
I have accumulated vast amounts of high altitude experience but my drive for harder more technical climbs is rapidly growing hence my desire to do the MIC & IFMGA.
