I am 38 years old and sit on the Board of Directors for two international companies, I am an engineer by trade but a coach by heart. I started doing triathlon competitively in 2008. I have raced from the worlds toughest Olympic distance race :11 Global in South Africa where I finished 3rd to All African Championships where I finished 3rd and 2nd a year later. I have raced from Ironman 70.3 Pescara in Italy to Ironman 70.3 world champs in the USA, but coaching is not about accolades but more about your ability as a coach to assess, plan, communicate and motivate your athletes to achieve their goals.

Soon after I began competing in triathlons, I found many athletes, from beginners to elites and even top coaches asking me for advice. This was when I realized how much I enjoyed helping athletes achieve their goals and it soon became my passion.

I have worked with athletes in South Africa and in the United States and even with junior development teams. So no matter what your level of experience, I can help you achieve your goals. I’m a specialist in organizing and planning of training programs, flexible and precise, with a healthy dose of creativity. I have an extensive knowledge of the dynamics in Swimming, Cycling, Running and Nutrition.

My strong coaching skills can transform your performance to achieve your goals. To add, I am a coach with no 9-5 mentality and believe in the personal touch. New challenges and targets are things that motivate me the most and I remain extremely customer friendly and allergic to bad service.
