A few random things about me

  • I am a group fitness and personal trainer on Australia’s Gold Coast.  I teach aqua, practice spin and veer towards the functional side of the fitness movement. I’m trying to be better at yoga.
  • I was a long distance runner for 31 years – which means I really need yoga.
  • I’ve run 26 marathons in various parts of the world including 2 ultra-marathons.
  • I have a PhD in Creative Writing.
  • I am 50/50 left brain/right brain but that doesn’t mean a balanced life.  The two sides of my brain are a bit like two cat sisters I once had who turned on each other the moment everyone got comfortable.  Fur would fly, cat flaps banged open or shut, dead mice everywhere.  Being forced to chose one over the other made life unbearable.
  • I’m a closet interior designer.
  • I was born in South Africa.
  • I like to bake.
  • My cat Archie suffers from small man red-haired syndrome and is a border line spousal abuser.
  • I believe in punctuality. I have never missed a deadline or asked for an extension. Not even when I was in hospital with multiple pulmonary embolisms in both lungs.  The show must go on!
