I have lived in Snowdonia nearly all my life and I was brought up doing outdoor activities like rock climbing, surfing and snowboarding. I really enjoy being in the outdoors and if I'm not working I'll be out on some kind of adventure exploring the mountains with Sparky! I really enjoy working in the outdoors and it's always good fun showing people the more exciting parts of Snowdonia.
I've been lucky enough to go on plenty of adventurous trips to places including Greece, Spain, Africa and quite a few in the UK. North Wales is my home but I spent 3 years in university in Sheffield which was a great experience. Snowdonia is one of the best places to be in the summer; you're close to the sea and to the mountains, and there's loads to do. In the winter though, I normally try and escape for a couple of months if possible! I've been working with the team for 3 years now and and having the Welsh countryside for an office is definitely one of the best aspects of the job. That and the fact that every trip is a good one, everyone's always having fun and every day is different; we have a lot of fun!
Life's a massive adventure! My main interests are surfing, snowboarding and climbing but it normally depends on what the weather's doing. The summer is a lot of fun here in Wales; we spend every day taking people canyoning, rock climbing and kayaking and we've had some exciting trips! In the autumn I try and go travelling, I've done Asia and the Phillipines, Australia, New Zealand and a bit of Africa. Surfing's great because it takes you to some really out of the way places that you just wouldn't see otherwise. I've spent the last 4 winters in the Alps in the 3 Valleys; Snowboarding in the day and DJing at night!
Sparky's our labrador. She loves coming out on adventures with us and she can swim better than anyone! Sparky's as at home in the mountains as she is in the water. She loves walking, chasing stuff, canoeing and gorge scrambling. If Sparky's around, chances are she's leading the way! Sparky's incredibly friendly and is brilliant with children; everyone loves her!
