I have always been a runner, When i was younger i was a sprinter and always liked the feeling of running fast. I only started running ultras about a year ago. A newbie to these long distances but with the success of winning a few races i have become addicted to the sport. I love technical trail running and the sense of adventure it gives me. It is a time where my mind quietens and nature comes alive. I love to race, it gives me a focus, a motivation and the determination to be out there amongst the remoteness of the mountains, sea forest and streams. I just love it.

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.
