I am excited to be blending my race experiences alongside my honours degree in Physical Education to offer coaching services to endurance athletes of all shapes and sizes. I specialise in multisport and adventure racing athletes with busy lifestyles where the challenge becomes fitting effective training sessions around other life commitments. I believe anyone can achieve their race goals with the right approach and a well planned and structured training program.

My many amazing race experiences from various corners of the world have given me plenty of good stories to share. Racing past tarantulas in Brazil, through the Rocky Mountains of Canada, across the Empty Quarter near Abu Dhabi and amongst isolated high mountain villages in China, I have been lucky to compete in an empowering sport. Much of the challenges and rewards I have experienced in my racing career create wonderful and meaningful analogies to life in general. My aim with public speaking opportunities is to share the weird, crazy and most memorable experiences my sport has given me and explain the way these experiences have made my life richer. In this way I hope to inspire my audience to seek their own moments of empowerment, by challenging themselves further through adventure, risk and discovery.

Public Speaking

Public speaking at events is something I’ve become more actively involved in, to share my racing adventures and encourage others to get involved.


Personalised coaching offered for multisporters, triathletes, runners, cyclists and endurance athletes looking to excel and learn from my vast experience.
