Two years after being registered blind, at the age of 29, Dean did a charity tandem skydive which changed his life.
Since then he has notched up almost 150 activities and challenges around the world, ranging from adventure racing to zorbing, and set over 25 world firsts in activities ranging from open-water swimming to stand up paddle-boarding.
