Hometown: Kingston Upon Thames
Living Now: Sunny North Wales
Discipline: White-water, Sea Kayak, Canoe and Paddleboard enthusiast and coach
Began Paddle-sports at the age of eight on the Thames at local clubs and centres and it very quickly became my obsession. From that age, I just wanted to be in a boat as much as possible and haven’t really changed apart from now being taller and greyer. I feel very lucky that I’ve met and paddled with some truly inspirational people over the years and in some amazing places. I look forward to this continuing for as long as my body will let me.
Favourite food: Fish curry is always a winner in my book
Favourite drink: Coffee
Favourite music: Anything, my music taste is eclectic at best…
Ultimate paddling destination: I would really like to go back to Nepal, I feel like I have unfinished business there. Plus it is an amazing place .
Motto: Without meaning to my motto has become ‘that works’.
Advice to newcomers: People can be quick to give advice or information, this could, without realising or intending, be their bias. Ponder this, play with things, ask many questions, but above all focus on what you think, feel and can relate to. This helps your understanding as well as performance but more than this, it allows you to question if their bias works with your wants, needs and goals.
