Raining from the lower South Island, a graduate from the original Pinnacle Programme, and past Pinnacle Programme ambassador. I am a successful New Zealand Winter Paralympic athlete. Having currently represented New Zealand for about 18 years, I am a three-time Paralympic medallist, more impressively a Double Winter Paralympic Champion and New Zealand's only Para-athlete to be recognised with the Whang Youn Dai Award. "An award that is awarded to a Paralympian who exemplifies the spirit of the games and inspires and excites the world". Along with a multitude of many more results and achievements. I am currently training towards my 5th Winter Paralympic games, which will be held in Beijing, China. I have recently completed and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Management, Major in Sport Management. Along with being an accomplished athlete, I am husband to wife Elitsa, and Dad to a cheeky daughter, Gracelynn!
