A bit about me

Do you have any hobbies and what are they?

I love the outdoors and the mountains so anything involving the alps, skiing, cycling, and climbing. With no mountains particularly close to Manchester my main hobby is road and track cycling, I’ve also taken to building various project bikes.

What three items would you take if you were going to be isolated on a desert island?

1. Some sort of high powered radio receiver to keep contact with the outside world;
2. For entertainment purposes, the complete works of Ray Mears;
3. Something to keep me sane, exercise my competitive edge and that you can play with just one person…a dart board!

What was your first job?

My first job was shelling 'queenies' (Queen Scallops) in the Isle of Man, the best days were when the Trawler Boats had been kept out due to tides, allowing the catch to ripen. It remains the only job I have ever been fired from - apparently throwing entrails at a friend was gross misconduct!
