About me


I live in West Yorkshire with my family. I am self-employed and run my own data analytics consultancy business, alongside which I squeeze in time to write and paint.

Over the last twenty years I have spent as much time as possible running, cycling and climbing in wild and mountainous places. For the last five years or so I have been writing about these places too, and three years ago I started to paint them. These days I find the writing and painting as important to me as racing around the mountains. My inspiration comes from the time I spend in wild places and in remembering these times and dreaming up more.

I have put this website together to show my artistic work and share my adventures. If you have anything you would like to ask me or comment upon please drop me a line using the Contact page. I am interested in commissioned work and getting involved in things so please give me a shout with any ideas!
