About Me: I have been canoeing and kayaking since 2004 and spent almost all of it racing! I specialised in Canoe slalom and this skill set has really benefited all my other kayaking! I’m super competitive and this has kept me fuelled to go faster every year! Currently I am focused on passing on the knowledge I learn’t racing abroad through my coaching and enjoying being out in the amazing places that white water kayaking takes you! And I also write code for a living, but kayaking is way cooler!
