An avid skier, cyclist and runner, Sean enjoys pushing himself to the limit on physical activities such as marathons - He has also competed in a 42 mile night navigation race across the Peak District; although after nine hours in the snow his team was pulled out by mountain rescue.

Sean is married with a young son.
What's your perfect hassle-free holiday?
Has to be Koh Tao island in the gulf of Thailand: scuba diving and just the simple way of life. I overcame my fear of the sea when I discovered the joys of scuba diving. And went on to train to become a dive master, teaching diving on the island of Koh Tao. It took me three months and 120 dives but it was well worth the wait!
