Born in Manchester, I moved to the Isle of Man in 1981 with my family.
Since then I’ve lived mostly in Port Erin in the south, enjoying island life and all of the wonderful things it has to offer.
For many years my business background was predominately in marketing, but my great passion has always been for getting outdoors and walking the hills and trails of this beautiful island.
In early 2018 I felt that I needed a new challenge. So, I used this as an opportunity to chase my dream of starting up my own business and enjoying the past time I loved the most, Trail Walking. My vision of combining my passion for walking, the beautiful surroundings of the island and introducing others to the fabulous hills and trails of the isle of Man are what led me to establish Walking Mann in late 2018, assisted by the Isle of Man Governments small business grant start-up scheme.
