What's your story?
Started recreational paddling at the age of 3 in Somerset with my dad who had done a bit of slalom. First whitewater experience of Symonds Yat.
In 2005 my dad was posted to Yorkshire and this is where i discovered slalom, started racing K1 and C2. However, when i was younger my dad only had two boats, an old slalom K1 and C1. Seeing him paddle C1 when i was younger meant that was all i ever wanted to do.
Ever since then I've just kept going, taking all the opportunities i could.
