Making memories, nurturing talent and having adventures are the things that keep him ticking and make every day at work a pleasure. From an early start, John had been working as a coach for rock climbing and now spends his working time in the mountains of the English Lake District; he has been lucky enough to embark on international treks and Scottish winter mountaineering.
