I have always been involved in water activities whether swimming or paddlesports. I was fortunate to then seek a second career working in the outdoors and gained many NGB qualifications. 

In 2015 I took part in my first open water swimming event, and this developed into a passion for open water coaching qualified with both SE and STA and sharing my vast experience with others and expanding into swim hikes and canoe swims. I myself achieved Coniston end to end swim 2020. In 2019 I completed my first quadrathon at the Diva Deva event. In 2021 I swam Ullswater E2E which I found to be a tough swim 7.5 miles, there are still lots I want to achieve.

I have been fortunate to coach some great athletes,  I have coached a gentleman who achieved both Coniston and Windermere end to end swims. I have also been technical advisor for television advertising involving open water swimming.
