He has a BSc in Environmental Science, has been involved in outdoor learning for 20 years, and became a self employed educator in 2001. He is an author and prize winning photographer and a “world class” didgeridoo player too.

Chris has many things in his teaching bundle including a natural talent for working with groups of people, telling stories, sharing bushcraft skills, foraging, creating environmental art and playing the didgeridoo. He feels very proud because his first book, a playful hands on nature connection guidebook called I love my World, “is a must” according to children’s laureate Michael Morpurgo. His latest project, The Natural Musicians is at the creative edge of nature connection and musical composition.
