I'm a Wildlife enthusiast and have a love for all birds and animals. With aspirations of one day having a menagerie of my own, I must now settle for the Wildlife in the garden, a single small pet tortoise called Stanley, Roo and Tiggy the dogs and two naughty children!
I grew up reading and being told stories of adventure, discovery and exploration and have a deep rooted desire to push my boundaries and explore. In 2001 I was lucky enough to spend a month on the Arctic island of Svalbard before becoming fully committed to rowing which has not allowed for other such pursuits. One day in the future I hope to combine my passion for wildlife and adventure!
