About me

Prior to my accident I led an adventurous lifestyle and had a love of the outdoors.  My interests included climbing, skiing and being in the mountains. My love of the outdoors has not been curbed and I enjoy walks around my local area and to the beach etc. I am equally happy spending time in my hometown Edinburgh and enjoy city life, cinema, going for drinks and shopping.
