About Me

I'm a  Paddlesports coach and coach educator.

I'm also an Approvals Officer working with British Canoeing Quality Mark Centres.

I coach paddlesports and deliver and assess paddlesport coach education courses, all over the world.

I worked as an Outdoor Education Consultant for Dudley LEA, as well as being the Technical Adviser for a number of outdoor centres.

I'm very lucky that I've been coaching and paddling in some awesome locations around the world - Canada, Finland, New Zealand, Panama, Florida, Grand Canyon, Sakhalin - Eastern Russia, French Alps, Ardeche - hopefully that list will continue to grow!

I studied Sports at the University of Wolverhampton, where I got BSc Hons, and continued to work there part time as a visiting lecturer in Outdoor Education and Leadership.

I contributed two chapters to this book  as well as a small contribution to Canoe and Kayak Games. I've also had articles published in Canoe Focus and Canoe and Kayak Magazine.
