Brought up in the South West, from an early age Jake’s playground was the great outdoors. Exploring the wilds and woodlands of the region; Dartmoor, Exmoor and Woodbury Common, his interest in the natural world was nurtured and a sense of adventure inspired him to learn how to utilise what the seasons offered.
An early career in the armed forces provided more depth to his knowledge and further established his passion for survival and bushcraft practices and when his service came to an end, he began sharing the skills he had developed.
Intent upon spending as much time possible in his favoured environment and with a desire to inspire others, Jake qualified as a Bushcraft Instructor and continued his mission. He has been working with the Outdoors Group since 2017.
“Jake is one of those folks you meet who, when given a simple bag of essential kit, seems most at home when he’s not at home.” (Nick Murphy, Manager, Exmouth Forest School)
