About

Good luck is the result of good planning. The day to day choices I make are with the ultimate intention of living an optimal life and becoming the best version of myself possible.

My cycle endurance and adventurous exploits have been subject to a slippery slope in recent years. In 2013 I had a short stint with the Biketreks racing academy, racing at national level on the road.
