From climbing to canoeing; mountains to the sea, Jason has been immersed in the outdoors his whole life. His early passion for climbing, outdoor adventure and travel has never left him and it continues to drive his life, his love of travel and his career choices to this day. A keen and experienced Open Canoe Leader and Packrafter, he's usually to be found on the water. To promote their love of the outdoors, family adventure, and in particular, packrafting in the UK, Jason and his family established ‘Tirio
’ in 2016. Jason holds various coaching and leadership qualifications in mountaineering, rescue and paddlesport as well as post-graduate awards in management, he has a Master’s Degree in Elite Performance and is currently undertaking a research PhD at the University of Edinburgh. During his infrequent spare time, he enjoys reading, planning and undertaking packrafting and hiking expeditions, especially those that ‘rediscover’ and ‘reinvent’ routes and adventures around our beautiful islands. With his very own book, he shares his knowledge with everyone interested.
We have a long relationship with Jason and Tirio and we are happy his fleet contains a significant number of our boats. Jason adopted Anfibio early on and invented some unique uses. We like their style, true pack and raft. We share a few common outings such as the Packraft Meetup in Snowdonia/Wales/UK 2019. Now the new book offers all the gained knowledge and experiences. Highly recommended reading.
