About Me

My working career has been in the IT sector for the last 25 years, I look after a team of Platform engineers for a global gaming company with offices in over 12 countries. I love what I do although it can be stressful at times, which makes a good hard paddle with a beer after with mates even sweeter. I started paddling in 2008 after damaging my achilles in a rugby game, prior to that I was a keen runner. I've grown up near the coast and surfski paddling has become a large part of my life. I've taken part in most of the ocean racing events with a few river races thrown in over the years. The beach is my second home and being able to be part of the DUC culture is a privilege.
