Meet the Team

Meredith Adams

Meredith created MAD Challenges as a way to share her love of the outdoors and experience Scotland in a new way. She gets involved with all things MAD Challenges, from blog writing and partnerships, to event operations and portaloo hire!

Meredith is mad about: “adventures to the mountains and climbing Munros.”


Dave Bell

Dave created MAD Challenges with Meredith because nothing like it existed and he thought it should. Formerly a climate scientist and outdoor instructor, you could say Dave is pretty keen on green. He likes to get excited about what MAD Challenges could become.

Dave is mad about: “outdoor kit, even though he clearly can’t fit anymore in his ‘cosy’ flat…”


Amie Farrington

Amie helps with MAD strategy and content, but her main focus is on you! As a user experience designer, she is always thinking of creative ways to make MAD Challenges and our websites the best they can be.

Amie is mad about: “cheerleading, she loves to coach and to lift people in the air (sometimes at the same time!)”



Immy Harris

Immy is the treasurer of MAD Challenges, but enjoys other things than just the numbers.  One of her favourite things is a hiking weekend, being outside and with pals. Don’t mention the weather.

Immy is mad about: “anything sport-related (she even loves cricket) and a flat white.”
