I took up canoeing when I was 16 years old, after first sitting in a boat on a PGL Adventure holiday whilst with my friend, David Atkin.

Since retiring from Slalom in 2012, I have continued working as a Primary School Teacher, as well as presenting regular sports pieces for BBC East Midlands Today.

I live in Nottingham with my partner, Mark and our gorgeous boys, Max and Oliver.
