Professional Details

Short Biography

Growing up in the Yorkshire Dales, my childhood was spent wild swimming in rivers, escaping into the hills for picnics and generally living a life outdoors. Eventually, I started exploring further afield, walking and mountain biking in the Peak District, Lake District and Scotland. Then I discovered a love for climbing. For almost 20 years, I climbed extensively in the Peak District and around the UK. Holidays were spent on climbing trips to Spain, France, Germany and Greece. More recently, I’ve turned my attention back to adventures on two wheels, discovering a love for bike packing. My favourite places are wild places, spending time there either with friends or on solo trips.
