"I love being in the mountains and showing others the beauty and adventure that they can offer. I spend most of my time climbing or walking in the mountains around Northern Ireland, so if you're not booked onto one of our courses you'll still probably see me and the other staff somewhere.

Another love I have is being close to or in the sea, and coasteering is one of my favourite activities after climbing. The excitement of safely conducting yourself in pure raw power of the waves is just amazing!"
