I’ve been paddling since the age of 8 and have been lucky enough to paddle in some amazing places.
I’ve paddled in Norway, France, Slovenia, Germany, Italy, Austria, Africa, America and New Zealand. I’ve competed in sprint, slalom, freestyle and extreme races, with my competitive highlights being placing on the GB freestyle squad twice.
I’ve been mountain biking all over the UK and in France, Andorra, Canada and New Zealand.
One of my more recent accomplishments is the completion of a diploma in performance coaching and linked in with this is the completion of the British Canoeing level four award. This is fairly big for me as academia was something I always felt challenging.
Future ambitions include completing a MSc in performance coaching (hopefully….) and lots of future biking and boating holidays. Oh yeah, I want to do loads more sea kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding too…. Too many things to do, not enough time……
