How did you become involved with EOCA: Through managing the relationship between The North Face and EOCA in my role as Sustainability Manager at the brand. At the heart of The North Face is a mission to inspire a global movement of outdoor exploration and conservation. We believe the success of our business is fundamentally linked to having a healthy planet. Being part of EOCA reflects The North Face’ commitment to conservation.

Number of years in the outdoor industry: Professionally, I’ve been involved in the industry since 2015. As a passionate outdoor sports enthusiast however, I’ve been involved all my life.

What else do you promote to support conservation: I’m a member of the RSPB and volunteer on conservation projects whenever possible. I also work on minimising my travel footprint and offset any long-haul travel

Favourite wild place: Vallée du Giffre in the French Alps is one of my favourites. Anywhere with good mountains to climb, and lakes to swim in.
 
Favourite outdoor activity: That’s a tough choice. Probably either cycling or trail running. I also enjoy alpine and nordic skiing, as well as open water swimming.


Perfect day: Waking up in the foothills of the mountains and going out for a long mountainous cycle ride with friends. Coming back for a late lunch and relax, followed by an easy evening swim.

"It was a great experience to receive the funding with the support of the people through an exciting voting contest. With the funding we managed to ensure preservation of another 10,000 hectares of wilderness in Küre Mountains National Park in Turkey providing safe haven for endangered species such as wolves and bears. We contributed to saving the last remaining priceless untouched natural areas in Europe so that future generations can also enjoy them."
