Introduction:

I enjoy spending time with my family (wife and two daughters). I also enjoy travelling, both at home and abroad. I love the opportunity guiding gives me to meet people from all over the world. Away from guiding I'm a keen sportsman having run several Bath half-marathons and cycled from John O Groats to Lands End. Other sporting interests include football, cricket and skiing.
