In real life I work behind the fence at Scion as a Forest Pathologist and pretend to be smart. But whenever I can, I work at sporting events. I've been working in the sport industry since my time as a student and been involved in event organisation for over 8 years, including event timing for 5 years now. Events I've worked on range from the Great Race (Rowing), UCI Trials World Cup to Triathlons, Duathlons and MTB races. I have been part of the NDuro Events team for several years and look after the timing and registration process. I am also an active figure in the Rotorua Triathlon Club (RATs) – currently I am the boss and try to keep them under control and spend all the money on fun things. Aside from organising stuff and drinking coffee at Zippy's I actually also enjoy being out there competing and riding my bikes, swimming the lakes and running the glorious trails we've got in the Rotorua Wonderland!
