A one time excitement enthusiast - a 40m fall in 2011 whilst climbing changed my life completely. I champion the maxim ‘Healing through Happiness’ and I’ve spoken to audiences about how I thrived through the life changing injuries. Passionate about raising money for mountain rescue.
The Number Crunch: 2011 – 40m climbing fall in the Lake District. By some miracle I didn’t die but was left with serious lasting injuries to my right arm and leg. 2012 – Rode a recumbent trike 350km coast to coast with a (still) broken leg. 2013 – The frame year, much of which was spent with an Ilizarov frame in the continuing attempt to repair my right leg. Competed in the para triathlon championships in Liverpool. Rode 1000km in two weeks from the lowest point in the UK to highest and released the award winning short film, Little Chamonix. 2014 – 3rd in the BMC paraclimbing competition. Climbed Ben Nevis post ankle surgery to complete the In The Frame project, the film winning ‘Best Spirit of Adventure’ at Sheffield Adventure Film Festival. 2015 – Ankle fused. Rode from Little Chamonix in Keswick to Chamonix in the French Alps, crossing 5 countries (via the Alpkit Big Shakeout) in 13 days, the highlight of which was a non stop ride from Strasbourg to Chamonix through Switzerland overnight, a distance of 390 km. 2016– Ran my first and last marathon (I had been told I would never run again). Organised the fourth ‘Long Day in the Saddle’ cross country ride: 1 day 120 miles, encouraging those who don’t think it’s possible, making it possible.
