I was brought up in the West Highlands of Scotland and have been skiing and climbing from a young age. The local hills of Ben Nevis, Glencoe and the Cairngorms provided a rugged training ground and instilled a lifelong passion for the mountains. Thirty years, and many adventures around the world later, I am as enthusiastic as ever about all disciplines of mountaineering and skiing and still striving to improve my level.
I am very passionate about my work as a Mountain Guide and gain a huge amount of satisfaction out of helping my clients get the best out of themselves whatever the terrain or objective; a first rock climb, a hard alpine peak or deep powder skiing.
I live in Chamonix year round with my wife Rhona and 10 year old son Fraser, and when not working, skiing or climbing, I enjoy trying to keep up with them on their mountain bikes!
