I have loved adventure ever since my dad took me hiking in the English Lake District, when I was eight years old. Since then I've led or been part of numerous mountaineering and rafting expeditions, from the European Alps and East Africa to Sarawak (Malaysia) and the Khumbu Himalaya in Nepal, as well as spending five years in the British Army's Brigade of Gurkhas as an adventure training officer in Borneo, Hong Kong and Nepal.
My first zip-line ride was across the River Indus in Pakistan's Karakoram range. I was working with the Red Cross on disaster relief after the Kashmir earthquake in 2005 and, with bridges and roads destroyed by the quake, the only way to reach some villages on the far side of the Indus was by zip line. It was pretty scary being perched in a small cage suspended precariously by a thin steel cable 80 feet above the white water, but there was no other way across. That trip got me hooked on zip lines for life! In 2007 I founded Flying Fox here in India with my business partner Richard McCallum. We were the first to bring zip-line tours to India, then racing zip lines. Check out www.flyingfox.asia for what we're bringing next! .
