Biography >
Started playing Beach Volleyball at the age of 12, training with my club, Wessex Volleyball.  Over the next few years, I entered national tournaments across the country, winning junior events at places such as Poole, Exmouth, Bournemouth and Weymouth.

In 2005, was awarded a TASS scholarship at Loughborough University.  In June 2006 I was selected to play in the World University Games in Cyprus and later that year won my first senior event at Barry Island with another Team Bath Athlete, Luke Sheaf.  Then after the summer,  decided to move to the University of Bath to take part in the full time training programme to further my volleyball skills,  I am looking to take part in some World and European events over the next summer, and ultimately compete at the 2012 Olympics.
