Love the outdoors and try to spend as much time as possible sleeping under canvas and getting myself cold, wet and tired.

If anyone is in the Worcester area and fancies a climb then get in touch... i am a member of the Worcester Mountaineering Club and we are always on the look out for new members. Always happy to be a belay bunny for a grand master who wants to drag me up a horror story or likewise am happy pottering around and having a nice easy day and showing someone the ropes.

Best Climbing Experience
Everytime I go out, although I loved leading my first grade III winter climb. The people, the climbing, the shiny bits of kit that jeopardise my monthy rental payments - it's all good baby.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
Hangover cures, extreme ala carte mountain cooking and wildly optimistic adventures hatched in the pub and forgotten by the morning.

Interests Outside Climbing
I Like my running, playing the ukulele, fine food and wine with a good pint and live music at a quality boozer. Haven't figured out a way of doing them all at the same time.

About My Photography
You can't go wrong with the theory of - Take enough crap ones and eventually you might get something half decent. Otherwise there is always photoshop.

Anything Else We Should Know
Loads but feel somethings are best left unsaid. More for the embarrassment of people who know me rather than myself - who could be described as shameless.
