Gordie was born in Kenya in 1969. He obtained an honours degree in Wildlife Management at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester. In spite of a double invitation to join the Royal Marine Commandos and the Household Cavalry of the British Army, Gordie's longing to return to the wilderness prevailed. With his professional hunting licence obtained in 1995, his career as a hunter in Tanzania and the Central African Republic began and has continued ever since. He has a profound knowledge of the bush and an ethical style of hunting, which when combined with his humour and charm, makes for an unforgettable hunting experience.
When Gordie is not hunting, he guides and outfits horse riding and wildlife photographic safaris throughout East Africa.
