He's also well qualified on the water - RYA Coach Assessor; RYA Dinghy Instructor; RYA Windsurf Instructor; BSUPA Instructor.
In his down time
In his spare time he enjoys getting out on the water as much as possible and spends a lot of time surfing in Devon and Cornwall. His firts love is, however, hockey and plays at Bournemouth Hockey Club where he has played since the age of six. The highlight of his hockey career was playing for the Marjon Uni first team in its varsity game against Plymouth Uni.

Why did he decide to join the Rockley Team
"This role is extremely exciting for me as it is a mix of my two passions - teaching PE and watersports. The opportunity to work in such a unique learning environment is incredible."
