I run an award winning bunkhouse in Bwlch on the western tip of the Black Mountains, overlooking the Brecon Beacons. In addition, I am a Brecon Beacons National Park Ambassador, Mountain & Moorland Ambassador, Dark Skies Ambassador & Fforest Fawr Geopark Ambassador. I am also an Uplands Volunteer for the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority helping with tasks such as footpath maintenance and various environmental projects.
I use my Mountain Leader award (along with MTA's CPD programme) to be the best guide that I can be when taking bunkhouse guests on guided walks or providing expedition training. I occasionally freelance for local companies (past clients include: A to Z Expeditions, Black Mountain Activities, Explorers Connect, Might Contain Nuts, Mountain & River Activities Ltd., Treads & Trails, Welsh Mountain Walks). I also lead walks on a voluntary basis for charity groups (e.g. Welsh Women Walking, Forces Wives Challenge) and for local walking festivals - Crickhowell & Talgarth.
I help organise an annual walking & mountain biking challenge called 'Bwlch With Altitude', and I am very proud to have the opportunity to be filmed for BBC1 Wales, leading Derek Brockway, presenter of 'Weatherman Walking', on a guided walk in the Black Mountains (Series 10, Episode 2).
