Connor does not see himself as a grand explorer, just some guy from Axbridge who has a love of spending time in the underground world, often in completely flooded passages. Originally from Scotland, he spent most of his adolescence in the mountains. In his early 20s he discovered an intense love affair with caving, more specifically diving in flooded passages using scuba equipment, unable even to see his hand in front of his face.
Connor has participated in and in some cases led expeditions to Spain, France, Slovenia and Mexico. He is one of the few people who has had the privilege to say that he has truly gone 'Where no man has gone before', whether under the Mendip Hills of Somerset or in remote caves in Mexico. In 2017 he found himself as the youngest member of a small team of cave explorers aiming to unlock the secrets of the Huautla Mountains in Mexico, an experience that has led him to be the youngest exploration diver on 'The Return to Pena Colorada' in 2018.
