Occupation: Regional Security & Investigations Manager

Biking history:

I came to motorbikes in my late twenties, which to a lot of people is a late start. I was an instructor on the roads for a couple of years and I did my first track day at Mallory Park several years after getting my road license. I did my first track day on my road going 1998 ZX9R on a red hot August day and instantly became addicted to it. So I spent the next couple of years doing numerous track days a year, then for two years I had the, No Limits ticket to ride season pass, which of course allowed me to do as many track days as I wanted at any track. I ended up doing 45+ days each year over those couple of years and eventually probably due to the fact that I was now part of the No Limits fixtures I was asked to take become part of the team and undergo the No Limits instructor training, which was back in 2011.

First racing hero: I don't really have one, I enjoy watching them all.

Biggest Riding Influence: I like the challenge of bettering myself and also helping customers improve.

Favourite Circuit: Aragon

Best Biking Moment: It's all fantastic, the smell of it, the feel of it and the social side of
the track world is amazing. Being with a mass of people at a race
circuit doing what we all love to do, you can't beat that feeling!
