Ever since my first time paddling on (and swimming in!) the urban white water of the River Irwell near Manchester at aged 14, I knew the outdoors was for me.
I have been lucky enough to not only paddle in some amazing places; but also develop and inspire others through the amazing experiences paddlesports can provide. Having spent the last few years working with schools which share a strong ethos for outdoor learning, I now work as a freelance instructor based in Aviemore, getting out on the water as much as possible, be that with friends or coaching others.
