What age were you and where did you start shooting? 

I started shooting when I was 13 year-old. On a family day out in Lincolnshire I saw a shooting club and went for a look, I started going there until I met a gentleman that lived near me who mention that he did clay pigeon shooting locally and that he would take me one Sunday. He took me to the shooting club and that is where it all started.

What type of gun and ammunition do you use?

My gun is a Krieghoff and my cartridges are Cheddite.

What has been the highlight of your shooting career so far? 

I have had a couple, like being the winning 5 man senior team for the European but the main highlight is winning The Clay Shooting Classic and The Super Five Perazzi Shoot-off.

Do you have any sponsors? Who are they? 

I am sponsored by Krieghoff (Alan Rhone, Peter Brass) and Malmo Guns/Cheddite UK (Bryan and Rosemarie Prest).

Who would be your dream sponsor and why? 

I am sponsored by the dream people. 

What are your shooting aims and goals for 2018/19? 

Win as many Championships as I can (including The World DTL Championship), qualify for the England and European DTL Teams.
