Spike was inspired to undertake expeditions while growing up on the edge of Dartmoor, where he spent large amounts of time with scouts, cadets and other friends. Since then he has completed numerous expeditions in a wide variety of countries, ranging from first ascents in Tajikistan and Siberia, training young people in the Norwegian Arctic and the jungle of Borneo, and trekking in Bhutan and Afghanistan.

In 2008 Spike circumnavigated the world along the line of 50°N after winning the RGS-IBG Land Rover Bursary. Spike is particularly keen on the rapidly-growing sport of stand-up paddleboarding, having completed the first descent of the River Ganges by this means.

Spike is an international mountain leader, photographer and experienced in diving, climbing, fell-running and sailing.
