Paul is a co-founder of WalkLakes. His parents were cub and scout leaders so he's been hiking since he could walk. Having a mathematical mind maps hold a particular fascination for him and as well as developing this site he wrote our mapping application. He's also a keen photographer and has now deserted his SLR for a Sony α7II compact system camera and an ever increasing collection of lenses.
