Born in South East London, 10-1-1959. Moved to Pretoria, South Africa when 15 years old. Visited Cape Town when I was 21, fell in love with the place and moved down there. That is where I began my hiking when I joined a Cape Town hiking club. Moved back to London in 2008 and then to Iznajar, Cordoba Province, Andalucia in 2012.
I have done many walks in the Cape Town area including all routes up Table Mountain and surrounding areas as well as neighbouring countries. Walked the famous Otter Trail and the Tsitsikamma Trial on the Wild Coast.
I have been to Namibia and walked the Fish River Canyon. Have been to Malawi visited Cape McClear on Lake Malawi and walked up to Zomba Plateau. Completed a safari in Chobe National Park in Zimbabwe and Kruger Park, South Africa. I have also completed the Cape Argus Cycle 106km event three times, canoed the Orange River in Namibia, paraglided off Table Mountain.
Spent some time working back in the U.K. and have done numerous walks on the Kent coast and surrounding areas. Visited the Norwegian Fjords and walked up snowy Preikestolen (the Pulpit rock) with its fantastic views of the Fjords.
In Spain walked in many parts of Andalucia including Sierra Nevada, Murcia, the Axarquia, Sierra Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama, Sierra Loja and sections of the famous Camino de Santiago in Galicia and done some canyoning in Alquezar near Zaragoza. Also worked on the routing team for the 230km Al Andalus Ultimate Trail in Granada Province for the past two years.
