Paul has previously worked as a Royal Marine Commando, a private security operator in Kabul and a teacher in Bangkok. Proud of his past, Paul is ready to take on a new big challenge.

“Since returning from Asia last September I have really struggled with the normal every day and after the COVID lockdown hit and many months of self-reflection I have decided to break the circle and be who I believe I was always meant to be; explorer, dreamer and someone who pushes the boundaries mentally, spiritually and physically. I want to prove to myself and everyone who watches that if you have a dream, you have to action it and go all out.”

Paul will aim to do this challenge in 7-8 months. He will sleep under the stars, stay at people’s homes and B&B’s if needed. Along the way, Paul will be raising money for Rock 2 Recovery which helps to support the mental health of armed forces, veterans and their families.

“I’m a big advocate of mental health. I believe that no matter how small you believe your issue to be, you should be able to talk about it and get the support you need. Males are stigmatised and I want to show it’s ok to talk about what is going on in your mind.”
