Short Biography

I have recently published The Snowdonia Way with Cicerone Press, which is a guidebook to a new long-distance trail through North Wales. Alongside this I have written magazine articles for Cicerone Extra, Wanderlust, Red Bull Adventure, TGO and Adventure Travel. I work full-time as Mountain Leader and Operations Director for Large Outdoors, who provide walking weekends and holidays for adults all over the UK.

I am on a writing project called One Hundred Heights, writing about one hundred British hills. You can see the blog here: http://www.onehundredheights.com
