Encouraging people to push themselves and discover what they are capable of. Seeing the improvements and the joy sport brings.

Heli-skiing in Iceland! My first time in a helicopter and getting dropped at the peak and skiing down to the sea was just incredible!
3 words to describe yourself?
Your biggest strength as a coach?
Having spent a long time racing to a high level I have a pretty good technical eye and understanding and have spent a lot of time practising and thinking about how to relate that knowledge to others. I also just love skiing and coaching so bring a lot of passion.
What do you bring to Team CDC?
I do a lot of planning and work behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. I think things through to make sure all our bases are covered.
