I am an active climber and professional mountaineering instructor and climbing coach. I work for both myself running a small business called Snowdonia Mountain Guides and other including the Mountain Training School, who I deliver instructor training courses for in the UK, Spain, Morocco, Chile and Argentina.

I love to teach people how to climb and help people to improve their climbing game. In following this passion I have also gained a MSc in Applied Sport Science with Effective Coaching, Performance Physiology and Sport Psychology.

I am also a writer having written a variety of books on Climbing including:
"How to Climb Harder"
"North Wales Climbs"
"Hanging By a Thread: The History, Science, Technology and culture of rock climbing and mountaineering"
"Effective Coaching: The Coaching Process for Climbing Instructors"
"A Mountaineers Guide to Avalanches"

I also write occasionally for UKC and have column on the Ascent of Man in Climber Magazine.
