I have travelled extensively and my experience in the great outdoors includes jungle trekking in Papua New Guinea, mountaineering in the Alps and the Andes, summiting every English mountain over 2,000 feet, lengthy wild camping trips in Norway and the Scottish Highlands, multi-day cycling adventures in the UK and cave exploration across the world.
I have descended many of the UK’s most difficult caves and have been involved in significant underground discoveries in the north of England and Spain. In July 2019 I was part of a caving expedition to Armenia, during which we discovered and explored the third longest cave in the country.
Cycling is my main mode of transport and I spend much of my time on quiet and dusty roads in the north of England, often with a heavily laden pannier rack.
I am also experienced as a mountain biker, kayaker, skier, snowboarder and scuba diver and have a keen interest in wildlife, both locally and internationally.
