I started caving in 1990, and started instructing in 1997. In 2005 I left the caves of South Wales and moved to North Wales taking a great interest in exploring the mines and caves in North wales as well as taking advantage of being closer to the Peak and Dales.

I hold the Cave Instructor Certificate, as well as L2 LMLA. I am also a BCA trainer and assessor for Level 1 & 2 cave and mine.

In addition to underground exploration I enjoy and instruct a rage of other outdoor and adventurous activities such as rock climbing (both single and multi pitch), mountaineering, hill walking, canoeing, kayaking, surfing and mountain biking. I hold the Mountain Instructor Award (MIA), Level 4 Open Canoe, Level 3 kayak and a degree in Outdoor and Science Education with Qualified Teaching Status (QTS).
