About John

Founder and owner of Wildway Bushcraft, John’s love for the outdoors started at an early age. Raised in a military family John was always outside in local woods building dens and making traps.

He attended his first survival course whilst in the Scouts at the age of 12 and has not looked back since. John joined the forces at 18 and has been lucky enough to be part of expeditions in the Austrian Alps, the Kuwaiti desert, Norway and the Highlands of Scotland allowing him to test his Bushcraft and Survival skills in a variety of environments.
