Ski Instructor, Verbier

My Story

I am from Scotland and grew up in a place called Torphins which luckily enough for me is located very close to Glenshee and the Lecht ski centres in Scotland and so I learnt to ski at both these resorts when I was around 4/5 years old. Every weekend during the winters we would all bundle into the car and drive up those windy, snowy roads for an adventure on the slopes! 

Years later after graduating university with a degree in mechanical engineering, I decided to go back to doing what I loved and make a career out of it. After becoming a ski instructor, I worked a winter season in Scotland which was what got me hooked. Working in Verbier sure is a lot different to working at home in my wee, local resort! 

When I’m not skiing in the mountains you can usually find me ski touring, sailing and exploring new places around the world!
