Profile

I competed as a sprinter for Belgrave Harriers as a teenager until the age of 16. I obtained a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and an MSc in Strength and Conditioning from St Mary's University in Twickenham.

I have been an accredited strength and conditioning coach with UKSCA since 2008 and L2 BWLA coach since 2006. I also sat on the board as a director for the UKSCA between 2013 and 2019. During this period, I was responsible for implementing the new Early Years Coach Development Grant, and the regional CPD workshops/seminars project. I am also a workshop tutor and CPD panel member ensuring that accredited members maintain their ASCC status.

Alongside this, I am also an assessor for UKSCA. I started my career at Wasps in 2006 and was responsible for the physical development of a number of the squad's up and coming talent such as Christian Wade, Sam Jones, Eliot Daley and Joe launchbury as well as leading the recovery protocols of the whole squad. I have since worked in tennis, cricket, motorsport and superbikes before turning my hand to academia.
