About:

I grew up in the countryside and first learned to ski on a family holiday to the Alps. After that, I was buzzing to go back every year with my school and this passion continued into university where I took part in UK indoor and dry slope competitions.

I’ve done back to back winter seasons since then, living in the 3 valleys in France and now settling here in stunning Zermatt.

On a day off, you can catch me skiing the incredible backcountry this place has to offer or in the snow park with friends.

In the summer:
I work for an events company as a team leader running the summer festival scene up and down the UK. When I’m not working, you’ll find me at the climbing gym, travelling to new places or chilling with family and friends.
My Zermatt insider tip is:
Get up the hill early, beat the rush and enjoy fresh tracks!
If I wasn't a Summit instructor:
I would still be skiing and exploring a new corner of the world – likely Japan.
3 reasons to ski with me:
1. I strive to build a fun, relaxed and encouraging atmosphere in my lessons. It’s the best way to learn and enjoy time on the mountain.
2. I am patient and adaptable. Everyone is unique and I will always take time to make the lesson suit you and the goals we set together.
3. I have a good eye for a photo and can get you that perfect holiday snap.
