I’m a secondary school teacher living with my wife and dog Burt on the edge of the Lake District. I’m an ex skater, BMXer, snowboarder and have spent the last 18 years racing mountain bikes. I tend to always find something to do.

If I’m not doing any of those activities, I enjoy making short films about other people doing various sports. I am taking a year out of racing bikes with the aim of learning to run long distance and attempting a Bob Graham Round in early Summer 2019.
