About Me

I am originally from the UK and living in Berlin since 2012. I studied medicine with a major in anatomy and physiology and worked for many years in innovation development for medical application. After a busy life working around the world, arriving in Berlin presented the idea and opportunity to change direction and get back to my true passion of human anatomy and its role in sport. Soft tissue therapy (STT) in sports was the natural choice so I started training in 2013, qualifying by 2014 as an international sports soft tissue therapist (STT). Since then I have been working with diverse and fabulously interesting people and projects and remain excited by every new client and presenting case I get to work with. As research, science, understanding and methods change and progress I am, as regularly as possible, on training courses which you will find below.
