Former competitive triathlete turned:

Marathon Swimming

Marathon or “Wild” Swimming is my main passion.

Self-Made Multi-Sport Adventures

Rather than entering competitive triathlons, I often make up my own multi-sport adventures.

Cycle Touring & Bike Packing

Cycle Touring and Bike Packing are one of my favourite ways to see the world.

Mountain Running & Fastpacking

I’m at home in the mountains and running or fastpacking is my favourite way to experience them.


I started yoga initially to help with triathlon performance but I soon developed a passion for it all on its own.

Recovery & Nourishment

While I don’t subscribe to any popular or fad diet, I am a big believer in eating mostly whole foods, but I experience great joy from eating and cooking.
