    Bush and field craft
    Born and brought up on a farm in Africa. I spent much of my early life in the African bush hunting & 'messing about'.

    After 2 years with the Rhodesian Infantry, my first proper job was as a conservation officer (Game Ranger) in the Kafue National Park, Zambia.

    My early professional life in the UK was as an officer in HM Forces. On leaving the forces I completed a BSc (Hons) in marine engineering and an MSc in engineering safety and moved into a career as a safety engineer. I spent 20 years advising and leading projects for a range of industries from heavy industry to British wild life parks.

    Additionally I have been fortunate to run, advise and provide logistical support for a range of expeditions in central America (Belize), North Africa (Sahel region) and Caribbean.

    In addition to teaching bushcraft, I have been involved in training folk in stuff like:

    1. Scuba Diving
    2. Beach lifeguards
    3. Karate
    4. Sailing
