I first got into climbing at an early age when my Uncle took me on forays to Baggy Point and Portland. Then after a few other encounters with great people on fantastic routes got heavily into it. I have climbed and mountaineered all over the world ever since. I have a passion for all areas of climbing from bouldering to altitude trekking and love the solitude and camaraderie of the Mountains.
I am a provider for Mountain Training and run the Rock Climbing Instructor award (RCI), Climbing Wall Instructor award (CWI), Climbing Wall Development Instructor (CWDI), Rock Climbing Development Instructor, Hill/Mountain skills, Lowland Leader, Hill and Moorland Leader, Mountain Leader courses and the Coaching Scemes, I also work for the BMC and provide FUNdamental courses, and MIAS and run level one and two Mountain Biking courses. I am also a keen surfer, snowboarder and photographer. I run many courses for many activities and as well as my climbing work I run a coasteering business.
