Why I wear Páramo...
A few years ago I was offered a silly amount of money to advertise an outdoor clothing brand but I realised that they didn't have any ethical or environmental credentials to speak of. It struck me then after a little research that very few clothing companies do. So, I consulted Ethical Consumer (see their website HERE) I discovered Páramo Clothing. I was so impressed by their dedication to fair trade principles and social enterprise I have used their clothing ever since. I don't receive any fee from them and pay for most of my garments. The kit is first class and copes as well in studio as in a jungle. The video below is a great example of why I am proud to wear Páramo.
When I'm not galavanting around the globe making documentaries, I am a full-time small animal vet. I work in a growing pet-only clinic with branches inbetween Crewe & Nantwich and Whitchurch. I love my clinical work with a special interest in medicine. I am enrolled on a post-graduate certificate course with the British Small Animal Veterinary Association in Small Animal Internal Medicine which is helping me handle the more problematic and difficult medicine cases that come through the door. Veterinary medicine is, at times, stressful and hard work but it's also very rewarding. I'm very proud of the ethics and levels of service we aim to give all our patients and their owners.
