Born in London, and lucky enough to be brought up in two of Englands most picturesque & dramatic Counties (Yorkshire & Derbyshire). Got my love of the great outdoors from my Dad a great walker who was always keen on taking his large family (i have 6 brothers) out onto the moors & peaks whenever he was able. He is into his 80’s now, still active & exploring the local countryside.
I trained as a chef at High Peak College in Buxton where I met my longtime friend & fellow Bubbler Russ Styles, who got me into photography, I’ve been hooked ever since.
My cooking eventually brought me to New Zealand which I now call home. This is an awesome country with very diverse & spectacular landscapes, which i endeavour to explore whenever I can, on foot & by mountain bike my other passion.
