I regard my self as a recreational service provider to minoritys and those at risk of recreational exclusion .I didnt intend to make this my life but it was made obvious to me early on that exclusive places and recreations exclude people by the very definition of the word exclusive .Now i feel that i have the best job in the world paid or not, to help another reach higher ground physicaly and mentaly is my new life goal .

Best Climbing Experience
atempting to name a new route with dave hooper at a quarry near stanage , I fell on his head, we called it Toxteth! i think the men who decide said no but it was great being a pioneer for my home town in a positive way even for a moment .
Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Unfortunatly it has to be the hope projects situation that I am part of i wish it was somthing else but these things become all consuming .but i do like to re read Earnest Shackletons adventures in the artic rescue as this is the greatest feat i think a human has done on earth oh the climbing bit is in and out of the boat i bet that was like a e5 route with no fingers .
Interests Outside Climbing
I'm a musician, guitar twanger and songwriter.I studied literature at Tremough uni Falmouth, and i am interested in art and creative practices . just recently I have become involved in social justice .
About My Photography
I love photography who does not, i like abstractions and cubist type pics or god like landscapes . I feel like i feed of beautiful views and photography helps me aquire this. There is a part of us all that needs to see healing things and nothing is more healing than a black and white shot of the cuillins range in the Isle of Skye, my favourite place in the UK.

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm now trying to pass on my insight to others who like me are alienated by the outdoors environment, and now see myself as a pioneer in this, and my attempt to finally make exclusive places and sport accessible to all people regardless of age ,race, class and all minoritys regarsless .
