I grew up near Bristol and spent 3 years working in Hong Kong and then 27 years working in London. I qualified recently in December 2014 as a Blue Badge Guide for the South West and have an immense pride in the South West and its history. Having been born in Africa and having worked in the Far East, I have always loved travel. Now based just outside of Bristol, guiding has given me that continuing opportunity to meet people from all over the world.

Aside from guiding I have always loved sport, in particular rugby and cricket, and am a keen horse rider and skier.
