I have been in the mountains all my life. Mainly growing up in Snowdonia, but a few years spent in Canada at an early age where I learnt to ski. University in Sheffield and Lyon in France and then I have lived in Chamonix, France and Briancon, France. I am now living back in Snowdonia. I did a lot of skiing of steeps while I was in Chamonix. On moving to Briancon I went through the French International Mountain Leader scheme, and then the add-on Mountain Bike qualification and have looked after clients on foot and fat tyres throughout the alps and further afield to places like Kilimanjaro, Peru and Brazil.
