ABOUT ME

Louis Waterman-Evans

I am a firm believer in the outdoors as a powerful force for good; be it the headspace it affords to mull things over, free from the ‘noise’ so ever-present in our day-to-day lives, the personal development that comes from stepping out of your comfort zone, or the simple joy of discovering a new place, piece of knowledge or something within ourselves.

I am conscious of the privileges that have facilitated my adventures in the mountains, to name but a few: being a white, non-disabled, cisgender, neuro-typical, straight man that is a documented citizen in the country I live in, with a strong support network and stable home life. Seeking to dismantle these, I hope to be an ally to those without such privileges, listen to their voices, and work to ensure they have the same freedoms that I do.
