    Mini Bio

    Born in the wild northwest of China, I have lived in France and the northern Highlands of Scotland. Throughout my travels, I’ve journeyed to the Alps and Scandinavia. Finally, with my Irish wife, we’ve settled down in my spiritual home, Sligo, in the northwest corner of Ireland. I am delighted to join the Wilderness Ireland team to carry on the warmth of the land and the spirit of ‘céad míle fáilte’ (which means “a hundred thousand welcomes” in Irish).

    Favourite Place to Play

    Beautiful beaches, hills, loughs and woodlands throughout my adoptive province Connacht. As they say, the west is the best!

    Not a lot people know this about me

    I used to be in a boy band when I was in secondary school.

    Education & Experience Read More

    I spent four years in France where I did postgraduate study in intercultural communications, improved my language skills (I now speak French fluently) and worked in a Michelin Guide restaurant.

    Travel and Adventures Read More

    Having grown up on the historical major link of the Silk Road where cultures cross, I’ve had a chance to experience the nomadic life on the grasslands as well as nights on the desert sands.

    I met my wife in Inverness, Scotland, and moved to the most northerly town in the Scottish Highlands, a town called Thurso, in the ‘Flow Country’ in the historical county Caithness. I feel lucky to have explored different parts of the Highlands, including a camping honeymoon road trip through the Lochs and Glens of Scotland.

    I’m a keen traveller, and I’ve enjoyed visiting Scandinavia and delving deep into Viking culture. I’ve explored and hiked the Alps across France, Switzerland and Italy.

    Hobbies and Activities Read More

    I’m an avid hiker who’s developed a passion for kayaking since my time in Scotland. I also love to stay at home and appreciate good food, music and a decent glass of whiskey.

    Specialist Regions Read More

    Living in Sligo, I love exploring the breathtaking views and hidden gems of my home province, Connacht, located in the west and northwest of Ireland.

    I also know Northern Ireland well, especially my wife’s native County of Down.
