  • Description

    I'm a 38 year old from Britain, I work in mountaineering as a mountain guide in different terrains and environments in various parts of the world......despite my love of what I do I still find time to freely explore.

    I served several years in the British army then worked for a few years in construction as a general builder.

    I've been travelling a fair bit these last few years and had many a great experience volunteering along the way, in love with the great outdoors and its nature.

    I have a can-do attitude and enjoy working in different cultures, countries and environments..... Being part of a team, the hard work and camaraderie that comes with it is important to me.
    I've worked on many Eco-projects, mainly building houses, pizza ovens, stoves etc....it's something that I find particularly appealing.

    A lover of beaches, mountains and rugby.......would go anywhere for the right project.
