I am a Designer from Bristol, UK. I love to explore the great outdoors, by foot, boat, bike, ski or just relax in a hammock and take in the surrounding nature.
On my travels I like to get involved with, and learn about the locals, and local events. I prefer a more practical getaway, where I can get stuck in and help with building projects or just help out in the garden. I'm not really a relax by the pool in a hotel or beach kind of person.
Some of my favourite places in the world, are deserts, or places that are striped back allowing you to get back to basics. I really love the cultural mix and dramatic landscapes of South African. British Columbia for its vast forests and endless wilderness. Scotland, my home, for the peace of the mountains, and the beauty of the western isles. Places I would still like to visit are Iceland, the fiords of Norway, Nepal, South america and New Zealand.
My motto would probably be "learning through doing".
My main passions are education and sustainability, with experience in design and build, from compost toilets to saunas to grand sustainable housing projects in the desert of Arizona.
I really look forward to visiting some interesting places on airbnb and one day host some spaces for other to come and stay.
