About me

Gender MALE
Industry Publishing
Occupation Journalist
Location Stainforth, Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Love the outdoors and backpacking in particular - my thinking is "why pack for a day in the hills when it takes no longer to pack for a week?". Live in the Dales with Steph and our daughter Sierra and would love to spend a lot more time out there in the fresh air, but am often chained to a desk writing about it. Magazine subscriptions include Backpack, Strider, ESQ, TGO and Mojo.
Interests Walking, backpacking, music, writing
Favorite Movies Two-Lane Blacktop
Favorite Music Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, John Martyn, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Neil Young, Wombles, folk music, 60s & 70s rock (Moby Grape, The Doors, The Flame etc)
