I have had a varied and interesting career in civil and structural engineering, snowsport, management, training and coaching. As a young engineer I worked in the UK, Portugal and Oman. In snowsports I have worked in the UK and Europe.

In snowsports I have extensive experience of ski facility and ski school management, training and examining ski instructors and coaches. I write and deliver training for ski instructors and coaches through to international levels. I've done media work including live TV and radio and filming with Michaela Strachan and Eddy "the Eagle" Edwards! I provide expert services to facilities, insurers and legal profession. 

I have extensive experience of the civil engineering sector in the UK and, in particular, south west England. I coach engineers towards gaining professional qualifications with the Institution of Civil Engineers, offering face-to-face and e-coaching.
