I am keen long-distance walker, mountaineer and fell-runner. I have completed rounds of the Munros and Lakeland fells, as well as climbing notable peaks in the Arctic, Alps and Andes, and am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
I am also fundraiser for Mental Health Research UK; I am very happy to speak about my adventures at your event or function - whether that be a literary festival, or meeting of a local walking group - in return for a donation to MHRUK.
