I have been hill walking and climbing for 25 years.  My main interest is Trad climbing but do find myself doing more sport these days.  I am gradually introducing my six year old son to climbing and walking and as yet haven't put him off so I'm hoping he will sooon be draging me up some hard stuff.

I have been instructing in the outdoors full time for 23 years and currently manage the climbing wall at Calshot Activities Centre as my full time job but also do some freelance technical advice and instruction work.  I am a course provider for the CWA award and a course director for the SPA and WGL awards.

I am a member of the BMC Training and Youth Committe and attend meetings when I can which can be difficult when having to travel from Southampton for an evening meeting.  I am also a trustee & commeittee member of the ABC Training Trust which runs the NICAS award and the membership secretary and treasurer for the Association of British Climbing Walls (ABC).
