Guide Bio

I am an adventure guide and owner of a travel and tour company. I have 30 years experience in managing leisure and cultural services in both the public and the private sector. For 12 years, I was the Head of Leisure and Cultural services for the City of Plymouth and was responsible for a whole range of customer-facing services including museums, libraries, sports facilities, country parks, events and tourist information. As such, I have a vast array of experience and contacts throughout the southwest.

I was born in Torquay and was brought up on a dairy farm in South Devon which has given me great insight into the agricultural practices in the area. I have a passion for the region and for customer service. A previous organization I managed was recognized for the quality of service offered and I received the Chartermark for customer service from the then Prime Minister John Major in 1995. I have a warm, engaging personality and a great sense of humor.

I am well qualified having a first degree in sport and recreation management, a Diploma in Management Studies, a Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma and an IOSH health and safety qualification. I am an advanced driver and member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists and I am qualified in emergency first aid.

I am married to Wendy, a PR professional and between us have four grown-up children. As well as my passion for the area, I am also a big sports fan, following especially rugby union, and cricket, which I once played to a high amateur standard and still play socially.
