City & country of residence

My work
I currently work for Sport Scotland Institute of Sport.

My current sports nutrition practice
I am currently working with the GB Curling teams, mens, womens and paralympic team towards the 2010 Winter Olympics. I also run weekly general clinics that have a broad range of athletes from mountain bikers to netball players to weight lifters.

My goals in sports nutrition
I would like to specialise in a field and be able to work with a team over an extended period of time. My real interests and passion lye in extreme environments.

My own sporting background
I love to participate in all sports related to the mountains. I trail run on a regular basis and compete at recreational level. I also mountain bike, climb and ski when ever I get an opportunity.

My favourite sporting moment or heroes
It has to be Lance Armstrong. For his determination and motivation to recover from cancer and his consecutive tour de france wins. Its no mean feat!

My favourite foods
There isnt much I dont like but if I had to choose I love Italian. Oh and puddings!
