The Executive



I have been a qualified teacher working full time in schools for 20 years. In that time, I have had the fortune to work with some amazingly motivated young people and some exceptional classroom practitioners. They all should be thanked for their patience and for giving me the opportunity to improve my pedagogy as an outdoor professional.


As an educator and coach I aspire to help people reach their potential in the outdoors. Providing inspirational experiences and quality learning opportunities that will help you to become  confident to take on adventures independently.


Holding the highest UK award for summer mountaineering and being a MTUK 'Development Climbing Coach', I can can offer a wide variety of mountaineering and climbing opportunities both indoors and outdoors.  I am able to progress your personal skills from novice to advanced as well as giving technical advice and guidance.


I have led expeditions and climbed exstensively in Europe as well as bigger trips to the U.S and New Zealand.  I am a full member of the 'Association of Mountaineering Instructors' and I aim to provide the highest quality and most up to date learning experiences.


For peace of mind, all personal skills courses and guidance is covered by comprehensive activities insurance
