Biography

I've always loved sport and working with people in exciting environments. I suppose it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards skiing from an early age. Following a degree and a flirtation with a mainstream job in the UK, I ended up qualifying as an internationally qualified ski instructor and set up my own ski school and instructor training centre in Val d'Isere, France. 15 years later I needed a new challenge and have brought these years of experience back to an academic environment and am now committed to helping the next generation of coaches.
