Originally from Wanaka, NZ, I have been involved in sports and the outdoors from an early age. I have always liked looking at maps and just like any Kiwi kid, dreamed of playing for the All Blacks, and for the Black Caps. One day I came across Orienteering at Primary School in Wanaka. Four years later in Dunedin I gave it a go again and the rest is history.
I have raced for NZ at 4 World Orienteering Champs and the 2013 World Games which has lead me to compete across the World. As my orienteering has developed I have also improved my running which has allowed a few more doors to open… in 2013 I represented New Zealand at the World Mountain Running Champs in Poland and followed this up with the World Champs in Italy in 2014.
When I am not out and about training, racing or traveling to races I work as a Mechanical Test Engineer in Christchurch, NZ.
