Growing up by the sea, I taught myself to swim in open water as a child. As an adult, I trained to improve my technique and efficiency and complete several open water swims (I came second in my category in an ocean race in Quiberon, Brittany). Getting into competitive swimming as an adult, I have great belief that anyone who is committed to training can become a great swimmer and I am geared to help accomplish the journey. Extremely interested in teaching, my methods adjust to suit each individual whether supporting the beginner or pushing the intermediate and advanced. Additionally, having competed in Thai boxing (I hold a European title) I have a broad experience in physical and mental preparation towards an event.
