Sport Scientist and Science Teacher

I am not an athlete by any means but have taken part quite badly in most sports, short-course events, marathons, ultramarathons, Ironman triathlons and multi-week cycling. My VO2 max at 33 years old is about 58, rounded up.


I do think that modern lifestyles conflict with how humans are designed to live for optimal health, so sport, exercise and healthy competition are great remedies.


The purpose of this website is to engage and to share knowledge for those people who are interested in this area.

Fundraising for Research

Raising £1192 for Parkinson's Research UK by running 7 marathons in 7 days in Qatar.

With thanks to all those who donated, money raised helped support research for a novel method enabling researchers to use patient tissue (instead of artificial models), to help identify which medical treatments to use for different patients, based on the mechanisms which caused individual strain of Parkinson's.


This will change the future of treatments to adapt the medicine to a patient's biomarker, which can also help with protective medicine earlier on in the development in the disease, to slow down or even stop the progression of the disease.
