United Kingdom
Hailing from the west-country of the UK I have spent all my working life travelling the world, working with, and learning the Bushcraft and Survival Skills of many of its first nations peoples. With over 35 years experience I have researched, planned and participated in expeditions to some of the planets most remote regions. Supporting my experience I have many formal instructor level qualifications. (See skills and Expertise) These include being a full time Certified Wilderness Guide, and Guide Instructor, registered with the Professional Association of Wilderness Guides and Instructors, Multiple Specialist Wilderness Guide Qualifications, International tracking qualifications that have seen me involved in search and rescue tasks in places as far flung as the slopes of Mount Kenya to the jungles of Borneo, and I am a qualified cross country ski instructor, freefall parachutist, PADI qualified diver and have medical training to paramedic level. I have been called on to work in varying roles with various US and UK television personalities such as Ray Mears, Bear Grylls, Jake Gyllenhaal, Will Ferrell, James Cracknell, Ben Fogle, Steve Bagshaw and Tara Shine, as well as consulting on documentaries with the BBC's Natural History Department.
