I have been involved with rowing for over thirty-six years and have served as a rowing coach for twenty years. I started rowing in the United Kingdom at Kingston Grammar School at 13. During my five years of high school rowing, I won two national championships in the 2- at the age of sixteen and in the school’s head at eighteen. In addition to this success, I earned a place on the Great Britain Junior National team and competed in the 1992 Junior World Rowing Championships in the 2- finishing 9th.
After graduating high school, I attended Boston University and placed 5th at the national championship regatta my freshman year. I was a member of the varsity eight in the 1995, 1996, and 1997 seasons. I was awarded the team M.V.P. in my Sophomore and Senior Years and graduated with a BSc in Human Movement Studies.
I have taught high school and middle school science since my coaching and teaching career began. I currently serve on the science faculty at Holland Hall School in Tulsa, OK. In 2015, I was awarded Collins Family Award for Faculty Excellence, and in 2018 the Pauline McFarlin Walter Upper School Master Teacher Chair. In 2023, I received the Tim O’Halloran Award and in 2024, the Craft Award for Excellence. (This award is designed for one faculty member from the Early PreK – 12th-grade ranks who has a demonstrable commitment to students well beyond the typical classroom responsibilities)
As a professional online rowing coach, I am committed to helping my clients reach the levels they wish to see success in. Because you can’t always receive personalized and private training sessions from your available coaches, I offer tailored-to-you training to ensure you grow and perform at your full potential.
