What am I all about? 

Athlete turned coach, I have developed my skills and qualifications to bring my life experiences into learning. I love using new technology to tell stories and develop education opportunities. Above is a quick video I put together at a recent Modern Learning event with my previous employer UK Coaching. 

Sport was never my 'thing' until I became involved in my local rowing club back in 1988. Since then, I have benefitted from the support of an extended family that

comes from a high performing sporting environment to develop socially, academically and professionally. Sport has so much more to offer than simply being athletic. Something I strongly believe we need to embrace more as a society.
