My passion for the trail goes back to an early childhood spent in the African bush. After leaving college in 1984 I attended the prestigious Infantry School in the South African Defense Force (the equivalent of West Point in the US or Sandhurst in the UK), where I qualified as a 2nd Lieutenant Infantry and fitness instructor.

After decades as an IT consultant, chance and circumstance led me to coaching runners and adventure racers. I have coached hundreds of runners over the last 15 years in all disciplines from road to trail. My true passion lies in Ultra running with an emphasis on trail.

My coaching is based on a relationship of trust between myself and my clients. My methods are based on proven science with a healthy dose of practical experience. The quality of my coaching is reflected in the results of my clients. Anyone who stays with me for more than 4 months will see positive results. Mindfulness is a skill set that all peak performers have a firm grasp on and it forms an integral part of my coaching.

I personally have run or been involved in all of the iconic trail races in South Africa such as Wartrail, Skyrun, Ultra Trail Cape Town, Hogsback 100, Addo , Ultra Trail Drakensberg, Mac Mac and Karkloof . I also enjoy road running and have completed South Africa's most iconic Ultra road running events, Two Oceans Ultra and the most famous of them all - the Comrades Marathon.
