About

We would like you to donate to our chosen charities; Kier Foundation & The COINS Foundation.
As a proud Kier Construction Chartered Safety Professional working in Central London I manage high risk construction safety.

I am a keen extreme sports enthusiast and in my spare time I have been completing the world's toughest endurance races as part of a lifelong ambition. I aim to complete the worlds seven tallest summits!

In the past some of the races I have successfully finished;

  • The Marathon Des Sables
  • The race to the North Pole on ski's
  • The Devizes to Westminster international canoe race


And now I can add I'm an Everest Summiter as from the 16th May 2017

Event details

Summit of Mount Everest

On the 16th May 2017, I Summitted Mount Everest from the North Face with my Sherpa Purba, words are not enough to describe the satisfaction of achieving my life time goal, along the way raising this money for my chosen charities. Standing on top of the world, looking around is by far the best feeling ever, it's a feeling that will remain with me forever, I'm an Everest Summiter, thats super cool.

I do have frostbite on my right big toe, it's healing well and I will make a full recovery, but it does hurt, a small price to pay for my summit.

Thank you to all those who given towards our charities, when all the money's in I hope to have raised over £40,000 which is huge!
