When I'm not plotting to disgrace myself, climbing is my favourite way to spend my free time, but questioning my life choices probably comes a close second. I also spend my time running, walking, mountain biking (poorly), doing yoga, eating cake and going to the pub.
I have been a member of the LMC for over ten years. Enjoying the opportunity to climb, mountaineer and walk in the great outdoors. As a side-line, I do a little cabinet making, although my wife complains that more stuff goes in the workshop than leaves it.
I enjoy climbing mostly, indoor and outdoor. I have a love hate relationship with gritstone but climb on it anyway because apparently it’s the done thing around here; I guess I do enjoy a good hand jam or two... at least when my tiny hands fit. I love a bit of mountain biking, and I am an occasional walker, rarely straying into mountaineer territory. Generally happiest wandering in the Lake District in the summer with my family, a bag full of snacks and a mega flask of tea. I also enjoy photography, film making, and desktop publishing.
Away from the mountains, I'm a research scientist by day and a keen cyclist, photographer, cook and gardener.

I like all manner of climbing; bouldering, sport, and trad, with bouldering being my favourite because it is how I got into climbing. I also enjoy skiing (the little I've done), but really I'm generally down for trying anything mountaineering.
