48 year old husband & father of 2 fantastic children that drive me on to try and be better each day. I retrained midlife to be an Osteopath to help others (6 hard years of studying and working. I qualified as an Osteopath in 2011) and now juggle a career as an IT Consultant and an Osteopath. I thrive on educating others to reach their full potential - I’m assistant lecturer in clinical neurology at the European School of Osteopathy, coach children’s Rugby, Swimming & stand as Chair of the Swimming Club. I try and maintain my own identity and acknowledge we all have challenges that others do not see or know about, so judge no-one by their cover - know the person.
WHAT DO I WANT TO ACHIEVE?
I want to achieve the Fan Dance Trident within the times and carrying the young mans weight.
I want to complete the Test March Series.

2019 I want to complete the Double Long Distance Triathlon
2020 - I hit 50!!! I want to try and make Kona IM World Championships – will look to enter UK IM to try qualify.
Continue playing Rugby for the ARFC Mighty Thirds so that I can play along side my son in the same team when he’s old enough!
Try and keep up with the children as we all learn to surf … they progress so quickly!
All the while I want to see my children grow and flourish and reach their full potential - which is all I want for anyone - #bethebestyoucan
WHAT CHANGES AM I MAKING?
Focusing on what is really important in life and ensuring that my family achieve their own goals as individuals - don’t follow or copy me be your own person.
