Operations Manager and Trip Leader

Chris has been managing trips for Adventure Alternative since 2002 and he specialises in the Kilimanjaro and Elbrus trips, plus the treks in Nepal and school trips in Kenya & Tanzania. He speaks knowledgeably on all aspects of these trips and has worked closely with the Tanzanian, Kenyan, Russian and Nepalese staff for many years. He also leads many of our youth trips in Kenya and Tanzania and has numerous treks and climbs under his belt in East Africa and Nepal.

Chris and Rosie (who also works for Adventure Alternative) have two children, Kioni and Robyn, and they live in Portstewart near the sea so that Chris can enjoy his passion for surfing and taking his boat out for a days fishing. He is also a Trustee of Moving Mountains Trust and has been involved with the charity since it was first formed. He is involved with the day to day running of the charity and has visited many of the projects.
