A bit about me

I studied for a Master’s degree in sustainable development and then tried “real life” for a short time. But, I discovered that it wasn’t really for me. Since then, my partner, our cat and I have been living in the Chamonix Valley – and enjoying playing in the mountains as much as possible! I also like to squeeze in a couple of fell races each year on my trips back to the UK. The mud and the rain makes me really appreciate the sunshine when I get back to Chamonix!


Trail running background

When I moved to Chamonix I was trail running to improve my fitness for climbing. Soon, it grew into an obsession all of its own. I was hooked on the feeling of moving fast through the mountains without a heavy pack. Trail running is now a full time addiction; I race as much as possible and use running to explore new places. Highlights include a one-day ascent of Mont Blanc and exploring new trails in Peru and Bolivia.

Why I love guiding

I love seeing how amazed guests are at the views from my local trails. I love being able to share that with new people.
