I was born and brought up in Fegg Hayes, Stoke-on-Trent. Triathlon and traveling the world is now my life. My full time job was a Fire-fighter based at Newcastle-under-Lyme fire station. 5 years ago I took a sabbatical from the fire service to enter into full time triathlon training which has led to me becoming a full time professional elite athlete. I started as an age-group athlete using triathlon to keep fit around my work as a fire-fighter. Through hard work, determination and creating opportunities I’m now training and competing full-time against the best triathletes in the world.
