"Originally from Devon, I worked as an outdoor instructor in local outdoor centres, teaching everything from Kayaking, Sailing and Caving before specialising in Climbing and Mountaineering. After a few years of expedition work, I now live and guide year round in Chamonix, France. I really enjoy traditional mountaineering in the summer, ideally away from the crowds in some corner of the Mont Blanc range. During the winter I ski as much as possible, and have a wide range of ski guiding work, from lift accessed off piste through to multi day lightweight ski tours. I love a good competition, and have competed in various trail marathons and ultra marathons in the UK and Europe. During the winter its all about the "Skimo" racing, from local races to competing with the British team in the world cup events."
