Age 29, born and raised in Plymouth. Spent a lot of the last few years travelling and seeing as much of the world as possible. Marine engineer since I left school at 16, my life revolves around boats. I could swim before I could walk…. have been spearfishing since I was a toddler, keen diver, both scuba and free diving.
Always up for trying something new, especially if it involves hurting myself! Have had a Gemini before as a toy but always wanted to get into racing, it’s the most exciting thing I’ve experienced on the water and can’t wait to get stuck into the racing.
Work – Marine engineer for Pro Marine UK, have worked offshore on oil and gas seismic vessels all over the world. Worked for Princess Yachts for 4 years building super yachts, moved to the retro fit/warranty and testing team.
Interests – Boats, diving, wakeboarding, sailing, riding (with and without engines), motorsports, photography, engineering, breaking stuff and partying

Age 28 from Plymouth. I’ve grown up by the sea and always been around boats and watersports since as long as I could remember.
I'm a keen action sports enthusiast with many hobbies such as snowboarding, skiing, barefoot watersking, wakeboarding, surfing, motorcross and motorsport.
I have always had a passion for engines and speed since a very young age. Since leaving school I have been a marine engineer and auto-engineer working with boats, bikes, race cars and superyachts.
I built and raced a racecar around the UK for the past 7 years at a national level. Prior to this I raced motorcross for 2 years.
Racing is very much in my blood and being able to combine that competitive drive with another passion like boats and the sea is just awesome!
Great to have Lewis & Steve joining us for Rounds 9 & 10 of the 2016 Microlink ThunderCat Racing Championship at Clevedon and we are looking forward to seeing them race at Watergate Bay, on their home turf and then onto Gibraltar for the finals. Good Luck guys, have fun!!
