About you I have always loved running from a very young age especially middle distances, I was making my comeback in the 800m when OCR came across my path, since then I fell in love with the sport and decided to direct all my energy into becoming one of the greats in this growing sport. The strength and adventurous aspects as well as the variety of OCR is very addictive and keeps me interested. The main goal is to be the best in the world and to make a living from doing what I love and carrying that knowledge over to the new generation of up and coming OCR athletes.
Top sporting achievements Multiple Warrior Race podiums, GI Joe defending champ from end 2016, and many podiums on smaller OCR events. I have qualified in the pro division since OCR World Champs were introduced.

Highlight of your sporting career Just being consistant at each event and obviously being spotted and drafted by Alec Avierinos for team Nevarest has opened so many doors for me definitely a big blessing, big opportunity, and so much more to come.
