I grew up on the south coast of England and have always had a love for the sea, regularly sailing, surfing and paddleboarding.
After spending 13+ years as a senior watersports instructor, I graduated with an MSc in Coastal and Marine Resource Management at Portsmouth University. Studying for the MSc gave me a real passion for the management and long-term sustainability of marine activities within our seas and oceans.
Using the coastline on a regular basis, I have been exposed to the effects of plastics that litter our beaches and oceans. As an SAS Rep I would like to influence and make a difference within the local community.
