Experience Summary

I'm an adventurous and sociable person. I 've been fortunate to travel to many places round the world, which took me onto working In the Alps for five years. I now have a grasp of the French language.I'm passionate about snowboarding and I'm now BASI qualified. I'm an active person and enjoy all types of sport. I run on a regular basis. From an early age I've always been interested in nature from mountains to puppies. I've always had a dog in my life and we've enjoyed many trips to the Lake District, which is a place vey close to my heart. I'm a big fan of music and spend summer months trying to get to all the festivals. I love food and drink -every type, I think that stems from my travels. I believe I've achieved alot in life through all the different experiences and people I've met on my way. This is why I enjoy promotional work, it's about interacting with people, being part of an experience.It's all about living your life!! View my contact details, availability, and stats.
