In short… I’m a father, walker, wildcamper, bushcrafter, cyclist, music lover or whatever term best fits the day.

About me… where to start. I suppose this sort of subject is one of those essentials for a personal web blog, I’ll stick to the facts firstly.
I was born in Sydney Australia and I now live in England near Chesterfield in Derbyshire where I have spent most of my life. Over the last 15 years I’ve been back to Australia numerous times to visit family and travel around. At the moment I am trying to make the most of every day, learning as much as I can, seeing and doing as much as is financially possible. From Mountain Climbing to Bushcraft, Any adventure will do.
I’ve always been a big fan of the outdoors, I spend a lot of my free time indulging in my passion for walking and wildcamping. I’ve walked in places all around the UK from Snowdonia, Lake District to the Highlands of Scotland. I’ve hiked in Tasmania in Australia and walked in the French Alps in summer. I’ll happily give anything a go, do anything, go anywhere. I love long distance treks or heading out in to the hills but I’m equally as happy exploring the local trails around where I live.
As I’m based near Chesterfield in Derbyshire the majority of my walking time is spent in the glorious Peak District. I feel very lucky to live in such close proximity to a fantastic area in which I can explore and learn. I’m passionate about the Peak District to such an extent that I’ve set up another website dedicated to my exploration and enjoyment of the area. You can find that site by visiting PeakRoutes.com.
Two of my biggest passions are videography and music production. I really enjoy heading out to document my adventures no matter how big or small they may be, I make videos for YouTube and create the soundtracks to go with them. I shoot footage with a Canon 7D, capture aerial shots with a DJI Phantom 4 and the music is made with Propellerhead’s Reason.
I work in the medical industry but as you can probably tell spending time outdoors is my real passion. My dream would be to have the financial freedom to travel the world while documenting it. So if any companies fancy sponsoring me then give me a call 🙂 haha. In reality though, I’d love to lead walks in the Peak District or further afield.
Ok, Thats enough about me for now. Once again, thank you for visiting my website. If there is anything else you would like to know or ask then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
