I’m a filthily addicted Endorphadrenomonkey. Mostly found lifting, pushing, pulling, pedalling and aspiring to be an exceptional Strength and Conditioning Coach.
I’ve found ever since I was denied the chance of doing GCSE PE at school that something major has been missing in my life. Sport. I’m now far too old to really achieve anything myself, other than super endurance atrophy and an age category result in said ultra-boredom, which I actively fight against.
Being of this vintage, it’s no longer about me, it’s about the opportunities that I can create for younger talent.
That’s the motive that drives me to continue to invest my personal time and money in UKSCA accreditation, UK Athletics Coaching pathways and anything else that can gain me credibility in what seems an incredibly saturated but experience scarce industry of sports performance.
Bikes have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved bikes, all the way from my Raleigh Grifter, Raleigh Mustang and onto the much more modern tools that I currently own which I ride to commute, on-track, for pleasure and off-road, some of which get me into what I believe to be some of the most beautiful parts of the English Countryside through Surrey’s North Downs and parts of the Weald.
Years ago, some fool let me loose on one with a motor and that landed me racing SuperSport class machinery up to National level in the UK, achieving rostrums, which I honestly wish I could carry on doing , but it’s simply too expensive for an average earning chap such as I, not to mention the hypocrisy for my environmental mindset.
Music rocks my world. My music collection ranges from Arctic Monkeys to X-Dream. DJing used to be a big passion, I landed some back room gig’s at the Fridge in Brixton and the Rex in Stratford before the scene I was into slowly became less and less appealing to me, but for the time being I get by just listening to the awesome talent of some of the artists that are kicking around today.
Favourites to name a few – Youth, The Orb, Eat Static, System 7, Snow Patrol, Dzihan & Kamien, Aim, Jazzanova, Fink, Bonobo, Orbital, FSOL/Amorphous Androgynous, Terranova and so on.
That’s me in a little nutshell.
Peace and Out.
