A fantastic opportunity for me to live and work abroad, teaching and coaching kids of all ages. Watching the students grow in confidence as they try and then ultimately master skills they never thought possible is great to see. No two days are ever the same!

I’m not so keen on heights.

Name three things you would want with you if stranded on a desert island for a week:

My dog, a pair of running shoes and an endless supply of Biltong & coke.
