My first experience of skiing was at the age of 5 when I went on our first family ski holiday to Fall’s Creek in Australia. Before going to Edinburgh University to study French, I took a year off and went to Méribel to find a job for the winter. Truly bitten by the bug, I went back to the Alps after graduating and several seasons later settled in Chamonix for a couple of years. A final move back to Edinburgh saw me join the Ski Independence team.
