Biography

Back in the day I was a double British National 5k Open Water Champion and represented Great Britain and England in open water events. In my quest to reach the top, I swam in many locations all over Britain, competing in races from 5k to 25k and also briefly visited France as a member of an English Channel Relay team. I had a break from competitive swimming while working in London and bringing up a young family but I never lost the love for open water swimming. I often travelled for work and used to hunt out locations to swim to get my daily fix. I spent many hours in Lake Zurich with the Alps as my backdrop. These days I swim outdoors all year round be it in a pool or in open water. I now compete as a Master, anything from 50m to 10k and hold numerous county and regional records, national titles and have medalled at the Europeans and World Masters in 200m Butterfly. In 2018 I turned my back on my corporate life with the aim of simply spending more time in, on and around water. I have achieved this aim and now take great pleasure in teaching children and adults to swim. I also coach and provide water safety at events. I am passionate about swimming and I love my new life; in, on and around water all over the world.
