Thanks for stopping by

I’m Ash Routen, a 32-year-old freelance outdoor writer and adventurer.

I’m a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild, and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

I’ve spent six years working as a postdoctoral exercise scientist. I currently work in the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine at Loughborough University.

I go on my own small and independent but personally fulfilling cold adventures. My next big trip is to the Canadian Arctic in April 2020.

I write weekly for Explorers Web the world’s leading adventure news website. I also contribute features to globally recognised publications.

To find out more about what I’m up to now you can read my blog. If you’d like to hire me to write for you, take a look at my published writing here. Or, if you want to see my published scientific work, have a look here.
