About me

I describe myself as a ‘pracademic’ coaching practitioner who focuses on solving ‘real world’ coaching problems. I am a multi-disciplinarian, reflecting my background as both a sports scientist and a social-scientist.

I am an active triathlon coach who works in both high-performance and a club environment. Actively working 'at the coal-face' is fundamental to my academic practice.
   Prior to my appointment in November 2015, I worked for British Cycling, working on diverse projects at both participation and high-performance levels. I also worked as a sport and exercise scientist (physiology) at the sportscotland Institute of Sport, primarily with Scottish Cycling and the Scottish Rugby Union but also in swimming, snow-sport, curling and tennis. 

I am a British Cycling coach education tutor, a Chartered Scientist and an active professional member of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES).
