Expeditions and Trips
I am a freelance Mountain Leader based on Dartmoor with 10+ years of experience, including Ten Tors and DofE groups. Although I work with adults and children alike, I have a particular soft spot for projects helping teenagers get into hiking and camping. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.

For Press Trips: the more adventurous the better.
For other events or projects: I particularly love mountains and that’s where most of my experience lies – whether that’s hiking, trekking, mountaineering (inc winter) or via ferrata. I’ve also got a lot of experience cycle touring, living out of bags or panniers for months on end and sleeping on the floor. You’ll find a pretty comprehensive list of what I’ve done here. But I have a bit of a reputation for being “up for anything” (although anything involving a planned uncontrolled fall from height is a hard nope). I’m curious to get more into paddling and bikepacking. I would deeply love to climb an unclimbed mountain.
I have very little availability at present for new writing projects, while I focus on writing some books. (You are welcome to get in touch to check whether this has changed.) My bylines include magazines such as MPora, The Great Outdoors, BBC Countryfile and newspapers such as The Telegraph and The Independent. I was a staff writer at Much Better Adventures for 2.5 years before going freelance.
You can see some of my past work here, or ask me if you’d like specific examples. My photography is often featured alongside my words.
Tools I’ve used: WordPress, Contentful, Zoho, Shopify, Kajabi, Clickfunnels, Ghost CMS, Vanilla, Substack
Editing and Sub-Editing
Despite being mostly closed to new writing projects, I am very much open to editing and proof reading projects. I am currently the sub-editor at Sidetracked Magazine and have been since Volume 23.
I’m always open to creative brand collaborations with companies and destinations that I admire. Typically collaborations have involved words/story, social media coverage, images, films or gear review (expect a thorough and honest write up).
My upcoming projects aren’t always announced, so please do get in touch (contact form at the bottom of page) to enquire about sponsoring upcoming expeditions or adding me to your team. I’m always interested in talking about new adventures.
Here are some brands I’ve worked with. I have no preference towards brands with black/grey and yellow/orange logos, it’s just turned out that way! Feel free to help me add some more diversity.
