I’ve been involved with triathlon since 2013, coming from a cycling background, after realising one sport just isn’t enough!.

I have raced around the UK from sprint to full distance (Ironman), realising that my preference is at middle distance (70.3) events, and chasing a GB age group vest. I enjoy the process of training and pushing myself to and beyond my limits. 

I gain a huge sense of satisfaction in seeing others make progressive steps in their own development with my help as a coach and mentor. I use a blend of personal experience, text book and online coaching methodology, coupled with my British Triathlon level 2 diploma coaching award.

Also love a gadget or two! Having technology to support learning, development and training, helps to execute a successful race.
