Fun Facts

What I love about rowing

Rowing builds and reveals character. There's nowhere to hide in a 2k.

Favourite place to race

Lucerne, Switzerland. Especially, the local livestock cheering us on with their cowbells.

Hobbies

Sleeping, eating and gardening: it's nice to be able to cook with herbs and veggies you grow yourself.

Inspirational Quote

Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it's the courage to continue that counts.
