My name is Oli France. As an ambitious, young Briton, I am following my dream of living as a full-time adventurer. In 2015, I quit the rat race. So far, in 2016, I've reached 42 mountain summits in 20 countries, winter-soloed three 4000 metre peaks, climbed Mont Blanc, travelled overland for 8000 miles across the mountainous spine of Asia, finished a major house renovation and got married, and there is still plenty more to come. I've gained support from a range of sponsors, presented to hundreds of local school children, delivered a keynote graduation talk and had travel blogs published online.
Over the past seven years, I've gained a degree in Outdoor Leadership from the University of Central Lancashire and qualified as a British Mountain Leader. I've travelled, worked and volunteered widely (visiting over 45 countries). Many years of hard-work doing what I love has brought me to this point. Now, I'm keen, I'm ready, and I'm hungry for the challenges ahead. Here's to the mountains, and to adventure!
