Until the age of 31 I’d always been a breaststroker, afraid to try freestyle in case the lifeguard was looking. Then, after some work collegues signed me up for the Great North Swim in late 2009, I was bitten. The next January I decided to teach myself freestyle and get back in the open water.

I currently live in Leeds, UK with my amazing wife Katie (who has a fantastic craft blog and business at MadeByMotherEagle) and a cheeky chappy of a cat Goza. We’re planning to move to the south coast as soon as we can – just think of all the sea swims I could do!

I hope that my story and musings interest and inspire!
