I'm originally from the UK (Surrey, England) where I developed my passion for sport and experimental psychology. I've sampled many different sports, but my main love is soccer. I began studying psychology (formally) at age 16 and have never stopped. Pursuing my graduate research in Kinesiology related fields (i.e., motor behaviour) allowed me to marry my two passions and to travel at the same time. Vancouver, British Columbia is now my home (where I live with my 2 kids and partner) and I have recently become a Canadian citizen.
