I have been karting for 17 years, during this time I have coached and raced both in New Zealand and overseas.

I enjoy coaching both adult and junior drivers, I believe in recognising strengths and eliminating bad habits, with a “don’t hide behind excuses” approach. I can provide not only driver training but also kart setup and engine building to give them a full package allowing them to reach their best ability.

I enjoy watching them develop and succeed over time which is shown in the results our IKS (International Kart Supplies) team has been accomplishing at many different levels.

My Racing Achievements
7x National Sprint Championship Titles.
3x Rotax Grand Finals (2012,2013,2014)
I have raced internationally representing NZ in Portugal, USA, Spain and Australia

I have been frequently assisting NZ Junior drivers competing in Australia over the past two seasons which I get huge satisfaction from as the drivers learn a different style of racing.

In 2015 my partner Freya and I purchased International Kart Supplies and are the Sodi Kart distributor for NZ.

I specialise in Vortex, Rotax and KZ2 engine building, chassis set up and driver training. I feel very fortunate to work in the sport which brings me and customers so much enjoyment.

I am a qualified mechanic completing my apprenticeship in 2012.
