At 18 I studied a degree in Watersports Management following this I moved over to Ireland where I would spend 8 years in Dublin working as a high-performance coach and then a kayak store manager. Ireland was a great place to be with a fantastic community.
In 2016 we decided to make a new adventure, this time moving to France’s Loire Valley where we set up a canoe hire association, promoting Canoeing and kayaking as well as our experiences away in Europe.
In 2018 I came back to Jackson Kayak to work as a European Team Manager focused on promoting our athletes and helping them get the best equipment to be ready for their next adventure.
Paddling has been a huge part of my life and its a path I have chosen to follow not for riches but for the people we meet and the places we go #Experience

Fun Fact: We have three French Bulldogs who share all of our adventures, Including Marlon who is Disabled and uses a kart to run around.
