At 6 years old I started diving with Harrogate District Diving Club, at the age of 10/11 I was competing in smaller competitions such as Hydro Novices and other regional Novice competitions.
I then worked my way up to competing at Age Groups level then Elite Juniors, I competed nationally and internationally at a number of invitational events including; Barcelona 2009, Lund (Sweden) 2007 and Dublin 2007. The most successful being Barcelona where myself and synchro partner at the time Gavin Bayliss achieved a 2nd place.
I continued to compete in the British Ace programme for 2 years, after which I then stopped diving and had a year out. I was invited back to HDDC to assist in coaching and this will be up-coming 2nd year coaching for the club.
