    A Mini Bio

    I am very passionate about working in the outdoor industry and love to give other people the thrill and enjoyment of being in the outdoors. I’ve recently moved back from working as part of an expedition team in Switzerland. Since being home, it’s been fantastic to work in the natural beauties of Ireland. Ireland is simple and epic in its own natural way.

    Favourite Place to Play

    In Ireland, for trad climbing it has to be Fair Head, as it has some of the most amazing climbs with epic exposure and offers a great challenge.

    Not a Lot of People Know This

    Before qualifying in the outdoor industry, I used to train and compete with horses.

    My most recent adventure was a gravel bike packing trip in the south of Spain, which consisted of four days of 450km and 9000m of accent throughout the trip. We began the trip in Granada, travelled to Gorafe desert, Gorafe to the Tabernas Desert, Tabernas to Trevélez, and from Trevélez we cycled through the Sierra Nevada Mountain range over Pico Veleta and back down to finish in Granada.

    I try to make the most out of the region I’m based, no matter whether I’m exploring Ireland, Switzerland, Scotland or Spain. All have incredible opportunities to offer and it is hard to pick a favourite as they all have their own unique qualities.
