Accomplishments

President - Coventry University Mountaineering Society

Seven months after joining the mountaineering society at University, I was elected President, leading a committee to steer the club to being the largest Sport at the University, and winning 'Best Large Club' for our efforts, along with being nominated for 'Best Committtee' and 'Best Leader'.

Group Leading

Since leading a mountaineering society, I have undertaken courses that have allowed me to lead groups all over the UK, hiking, climbing, scrambling and at altitude in the French Alps.

Travelling

I belive exploring cultures is very important for personal development, and I have been fortunate enough to explore this through travelling all over the world with Egypt, Cyprus, Croatia, Australia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Greece, Andorra among my favourite destinations. The outdoors has always been focal on these trips, having completed hut to hut walks in the Ecrins and the Dolomites, as well as summitting the Aiguille du Tour, and Roche Faurio, both Alpine peaks above 3,500 metres.

Musician - Guitarist

Balancing my love of tech and the outdoors sits music, evident through 13 years of guitar - playing as part of function bands, jazz groups, classical guitar ensembles, musical bands and as a solo performer.
