Since I was young i’ve loved going down hills fast and flying through the air, so I naturally
took to skiing, freestyle and freeride in particular!

I’ve skied and worked all over the world from Japan to New Zealand before finding a place with such charm and a highly professional, down-to-earth ski school to work with.

Skiing is something that allows for personal expression and style that makes it an amazingly individual sport that beginners to experts, young and old can enjoy. In Zermatt we have terrain for all and views that you would not believe!

In the summer

I have skied in New Zealand at Mt Ruapehu for the last three years in the wind and rain teaching Junior Freeride World Tour hopefuls and some of the many naturally talented kiwis. On the occasional pandemic induced summer, you’ll find me riding my mountain bike around the Cotswolds and swimming in the lakes and rivers.

My Zermatt insider tip is:

Up early, quick coffee in the day and a late lunch is the best way to enjoy a family ski day.

If I wasn't a Summit instructor:

Fulfilling a childhood dream of being a stuntman!

3 reasons to ski with me:

1. I’ve got lots of patience and a smile on my face.

2. Having taught in Zermatt for 5 consecutive seasons I know what terrain will make you feel good and also terrain that will challenge you.

3. If freestyle is your thing, it is also mine!
