From 2007-2018, Nick dedicated his life to serving his country, completing six operational deployments in some of the world's most hostile regions. 

Now, as an international speaker, bestselling author, and the co-founder of Hidden Valley Bushcraft, Nick works with and advises key government bodies and charities on delivering optimal programmes to foster a mentally resilient society.


A crucial part of his work is the globally recognised Woodland Warrior Programme, now in its 7th year, which partners with esteemed organisations like Invictus Games, the Veteran’s Foundation, and the Blue Light Card Foundation. The programme supports Armed Forces & Emergency Service Personnel's rehabilitation using nature's healing power.

What to Expect

After leaving military service, Nick turned his focus towards championing mental fitness. His deep & personal understanding of nature's role in supporting mental well-being has since, not only influenced our perceptions, but secured him a place as a thought leader in this field.

As an international speaker and bestselling author, he confidently connects deeply with global audiences, offering inspiration derived from his own experiences.


Away from the stage his company, Hidden Valley Bushcraft, and his CIC The Woodland Warrior Programme, is recognised for its innovative outdoor activities that amplify positive mental fitness.

Despite his impressive achievements, Nick's humility shines through. His engaging presence and charismatic nature continue to drive a profound movement towards valuing nature as a key & vital resource for mental resilience.
