Award-winning outdoor writer

Many thanks for visiting my website! I count myself as very fortunate to have a peripatetic lifestyle, which sees me flitting between the Lake District and the Alps. As well as guiding clients on trail and fell running trips, I’m also an award-winning outdoor writer and guidebook author. Recently I wrote the mountain running guidebooks for both the Chamonix Mont Blanc region (published April 2016), and the Lake District fells (published April 2017). My books were published by the Cicerone Press, and you can read more on my author profile of the publishers website here. I’ve written many articles for the outdoor press, and features were published in magazines including; BMC Summit, Ultra Magazine, Trek & Mountain, Snowshoe Magazine, and more.
