I was born and grew up in Johannesburg South Africa. I immigrated to Australia in the late 1980s. I was a long distance runner for 31 years before a knee injury changed the course of my life.
Currently I live on the Gold Coast where I work as a group fitness and personal trainer teaching
Deep Water Running,
I have completed my Level 1 Athletics coaching and currently completing my Level I Yoga Teachers Training Course. In addition to my fitness career I am also working on memoir.
I have a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Western Australia where I was blessed to spend nine happy and mostly productive years. Life is good!
