What I love about rowing

I love racing!

Favourite place to race

Lac d'Aiguebelette, France.


In my spare time, I can be found on two wheels exploring wherever I am in the world! I am also working on completing my undergraduate degree in Economics. This has taken up a lot of my spare time, so my academic life is somewhat a hobby at this stage.
