Dave is an experienced International Mountain Leader and all-round outdoor educator. He holds the MIC, the highest UK mountaineering qualification and also has provider status so he can deliver training and assessment on the UK single pitch climbing award.

After completing 22 years in the British Army, mainly delivering adventure training, he worked as an outdoor trainer in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, France, Germany and the UAE.

As well as leading treks for RAW, he run his own adventure-based company out in the foothills of the French Pyrenees where he lives with his wife Louise, son Jake and two dogs Thor and Mir.

When Dave is not guiding treks, you’ll find him cycling, paddling, skiing or snowshoeing.
