I’ve always had an interest in sports. It was while I was studying for my sports science degree at Munich University that I became passionate about triathlon and cycling.
In 2007 I took a big step towards realising my dream of becoming a full time athlete. I quit my job and spent the year racing for a professional cycling team in Europe. Racing on a team was a fantastic experience but during this time I decided that triathlon was the sport I really loved. I’ve been living in New Zealand since 2007 as a professional triathlete.

I am an Auckland based Professional Half-Ironman Triathlete, and a Pilates Instructor. I came into the sport of Triathlon rather late in the game from a running background. I raced cross country, track and marathons and spent 6 years living in Gunnison Colorado firstly on an athletic scholarship at Western State University then racing marathons on the elite road racing circuit.
