Mountain bike guide, climber & ski instructor

I’m a self-confessed mountain addict that has spent the last 5 years trying to build a life that enables me to live and work in the mountains year round! I grew up in the North West of England, spent 10 years living in Sheffield, and then have lived a somewhat nomadic life since!
I work as a mountain bike guide for several companies in Europe, taking people on 6-day backcountry journeys through beautiful scenery and along incredible trails. Alongside this, I also run my own guiding company, Endless Trails MTB. I organise bikepacking adventure weekends and multi-day trips in the UK, as well as MTB holidays in the French Alps. In the Winter, I work part-time as a ski instructor too, another way of sharing a sport I’m passionate about with others, and of course, being outside!
When I’m not working, I can be found planning or undertaking the next adventure that lets me explore new, wild and beautiful places through climbing, biking, or skiing through them! It’s been hard work making it happen, but I’ve managed to build a life I love and feel very proud of myself, for… I’m a firm believer in the fact that you can choose to do anything and make it happen if you work hard enough for it!
