I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths.
My real passion lies in combining mountains and water and as such you’ll often find me either in the mountains altitude diving, or in the mountains ice diving. Both exhilarating and peaceful – allowing me to regenerate the inner me, whilst pushing myself physically and mentally.
As part of my passion I own and run a licenced fishing boat which I use for catching Scallops and sea urchins by hand diving for them, keeping this sustainable and damage free to the environment.
I also own and operate Scavenger Dive Boat Club out of Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
I am a Mountain and Climbing Instructor (MIA), a Winter Mountain Leader, a Scuba Diving Instructor (BSAC, TDI, SDI, IANTD), a skipper for CAT3 waters for up to 25 mtr boats with 12 passengers, and as I’ve built this experience over time, I have written about it and published those works.
In addition I am a Chartered operations Manager with CILT, a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management, and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
In addition to running my own operations, I help people fulfil their goals in the Mountains (Worldwide), Scuba Diving (Worldwide), provide location support worldwide for the media and assist with technical and safety support whenever requested.
