Having grown up in the mountainous county of Kent I spent much of my childhood escaping to go camping and hiking in the UK and French Alps. On Joining the Air Training Corps (ATC) I found my love for the outdoors fuelled through Duke of Edinburgh Award and adventurous training weekends, I later went onto become an Adventure Training Instructor with DofE Expedition groups for the ATC.
I hold the Summer Mountain Leader and Single Pitch Climbing Awards and I am aspirant International Mountain Leader, I am constantly seeking out opportunities to work in new environments that I love. I am comfortable with all ability levels and group sizes and enjoy teaching new skills to others. I have commercial expedition experience with adult and youth teams in Peru, Borneo, Tanzania, Alaska, Morocco and Patagonia.. I prioritise organisation and safety – with some bad jokes thrown in for good measure! I am also full volunteer member of Llanberis Mountain Rescue team and active British Mountaineering Council representative with Mountain Training Cymru.
I am a firm believer in making ideas happen and can regularly be found tapping up contacts for my latest project. I have contributed previously to Trek & Mountain magazine with gear test and knowledge articles, as well as assisting in early product development with Jöttnar. On the 8th day of the week, i’ll be working on the latest recce project for a client or sourcing exciting new films for the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival (LLAMFF)!

I am an International Mountain Leader, as well as Single Pitch climbing Award holder. My wife Kate and I run RAW Adventures and Climb Snowdon and are based in Snowdonia, North Wales. We are providers of the Hill and Mountain Skills scheme as well as Lowland Leaders Award and the Expedition Skills module, in addition to this we are Approved Activity Providers for Duke of Edinburgh Award.

I am constantly seeking out opportunities to work in new environments that I love here in the UK and overseas. I am comfortable with all ability levels and group sizes and enjoy teaching new skills to others.
I have planned and led commercial trekking and high altitude expeditions with adult and youth teams in Greece, Spain, Peru, Borneo, Tanzania, Alaska, Morocco, China and Patagonia. I have also carried out scouting and feasibility projects for UK and oversea challenges, filming projects and training courses and always prioritize organizational safety, with some bad jokes thrown in for good measure!
