In 2010 I became one of the first guides in the UK to qualify with a BA Honours Degree in Tourist Guiding. I qualified as a professional tourist guide for Wales in 2000, for South West England in 2011 and for Liverpool Region in 2013. I have work experience in many different sectors of the tourism industry. I am a member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding, Guild of Registered Tourist Guides, the Tourism Society and am current Membership Secretary of Wales Official Tourist Guides Association. I work throughout the UK and overseas promoting my home country of Wales. Besides travel, another major passion is sport. I am an enthusiastic golfer and a regular player of football.
