"I reluctantly started climbing as university friends were into it and they wouldn't take no for an answer. I'm pretty glad they persuaded me as it's taken up the majority of my personal and professional time since then. I've been climbing for around eleven years now and have seen some amazing places and met some amazing people. I mostly boulder but do like a bit of trad danger too. You'll find me climbing on vert and slab technical terror climbs that no one ever wants to repeat. At work, I'm either around the coffee machine trying my best to pour a rosetta. Up a ladder setting boulders or lurking in an office answering all the questions and generally trying to make Highball a great place to be."
