I'm a British Cycling (UKCC) qualified Level 3 Road and Time Trial coach and a Level 2 Track coach. The pathway to my coaching experience and qualifications started in 2009 alongside my professional career where I worked in senior managerial position for Barclays, HSBC, British Waterways and National Grid Property. Perhaps this is why many of my riders are 'professionals' themselves - psychologists, a barrister, IT workers, a retired CEO, a dentist as well as being successful athletes.

I coach both male and female riders locally, nationally and internationally. I have been involved in British Cycling's Regional and National schools of racing helping some of the very best young riders realise their potential. I have led structured training camps in Mallorca since 2009.

​I have coached the Great Britain Transplant Cycling team since 2009 and I have competed internationally with them since 1999. I have 7 world road race titles and 8 world time trial titles to my name including the fastest recorded 5km in World Transplant games history set in Nancy, France in 2003. I added a team time trial gold medal in Newcastle, UK in 2019. I compete as a 3rd Cat road racer, a regular time trialist and track rider.

My aim as a coach is to get the most out of you as a rider irrespective of age, status, sex or category and, ultimately, to help you achieve your goals.
