I was lucky enough to spend my childhood exploring the beautiful woods, valleys and hills of Northumberland. This sparked a lifelong love of nature and the desire to protect it.

Since university I spent a number of years living in Chile and in Portugal where I ran an adventure tourism company to make the most of the sunshine and scenery. Now back home I work as a researcher for the public sector and charities, helping organisations reach their audience and in my free time I love running and walking in nature.

As an individual, faced with all the world’s environmental problems it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless. However, Greenpeace has proven repeatedly that when we work together we can change the world one little bit at a time. That is why I am a member of Greenpeace and a Greenspeaker.

Based in: Prudhoe
