My name is Kieran and I am the Chief Instructor at CCUK. I have over 20 years of outdoor Instructing experience both home and abroad. This is across a broad spectrum of outdoor activities. I am very passionate about what I do and as well as work in my free time I will often be found in the hills, around water or down a cave.

I am currently completing my cave instructor certificate (CIC). This is the highest level caving award. I hold the Mountain Instructor Award(MIA). I am a canoe and kayak coach holding 4star in both. I have lots of swift water rescue experience holding WWSR and Rescue 3 certification.

My ethos is to work hard, play hard and constantly seek out new challenges. I strive to bring that out in both the people I meet and work with.
