I am a qualified school teacher and outdoor instructor as well as first aid instructor. I also run large participation charity treks and cycle events which always feature a degree of first aid – usually very blistered feet!
My main interests are in mountaineering and I am a qualifield mountain leader and rock climbing instructor. Mountain biking and canoeing feature, and I also sail and have RYA qualifications.
I own a 28ft sailing cruiser, and live permanently on board a narrowboat. Taken together this means that I spend very little time in buildings and almost never get to sleep in them.
This year I am training as a level 3 forest schools practitioner.
