I'm a journalist with more than 18 years' experience of writing for and editing magazines, newspapers, books and websites.
Since 2010 I've been freelance full-time, specialising in my passion for outdoor adventure.
That usually means writing about long-distance running or walking, fitness, reviewing equipment or technology, editing or authoring books.
I thank my midlife crisis for getting me addicted to ultramarathon running and I've represented my country, recorded competitive results at some of the world's toughest races, and set a record on the UK's longest National Trail.
Ultimately I just love being in the great outdoors, ideally exercising somewhere lumpy.
My daps are regularly muddied in Britain's glorious South West, especially in the Brecon Beacons and the Cotswolds, where I grew up and now live again.
Summit Fever Media's new film UNDERDOG (see below) documents my attempt to crack the top 10 at the 105-mile Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc.
