Tell us about yourself!

I have been passionate about outdoor learning and adventure all my life. For the last 20 years I have been involved in coaching and outdoor leadership. I am a British Canoeing Advanced Water Canoe Coach and hold the British Canoeing Coaching Diploma (the highest level of qualification offered by British Canoeing) I am a Coach Educator, providing Paddlesport Instructor, British Canoeing Coach Award Core and Discipline Specific Training and Assessment. I am National Trainer for leadership, Coaching the Mind and Outdoor Education. I have masters degrees in Outdoor and Experiential Learning and Performance Coaching and a PGCE. Aside from paddlesport I am an active Mountain Leader and Rock Climbing Instructor. My motivation is the belief that everyone can get out there and have their own adventures in ways that are meaningful to them. It doesn't all have to be all about gnar and going big.
