Number of years in the outdoor industry:
I was new to the outdoor industry when I started at EOCA, having come from a conservation background. I trained in Environmental Biology and then Forestry. I then worked for WWF UK and also businesses in the timber and paper industry on the responsible sourcing of timber and paper products from well managed forests. I hope that this background and my love of outdoor activities will stand me in good stead in the outdoor industry! I joined EOCA in January 2011.
What else do you promote to support conservation:
I grow some of my own fruit and veg, keep chickens for eggs and was in fact self sufficient in meat for 12 months. I only use renewable energy at home
Favourite wild place:
Any of the Lake District tarns, high up in the hills! Great places to enjoy dramatic scenery, swim and wild camp!
