Tim originates from the UK but has called NZ home for the last 10 years. He has climbed throughout NZ, UK and European Alps and has lead and guided mountaineering, rock climbing and trekking trips to Nepal, Peru, Russia, Africa, China and South East Asia.
Tim studied engineering before embarking on his outdoor instruction and guiding career and has been guiding throughout the Southern Alps since 2010 and taking over as Chief Guide for Aspiring Guides in 2016. He has been an active committee member for the NZMGA for the last 5 years and the Chair of the Technical Sub-Committee since 2016. He is also a member of the Wanaka Alpine Cliff Rescue team.
Currently he is enjoying a bit more time at home helping look after his young family, occasionally being let out to the crags and hills for a rest. Looking forward to getting out on some family mountaineering adventures soon.
A trad rock climber at heart, the more adventurous the better, his favorite spot in NZ include is the Darrans for alpine rock or winter climbing and Castle Hill for a spot of bouldering.
