I was born and bred as a northerner in England where sport crept into my life, planting the seed at a young age which blossomed into a full life’s passion. Hand in hand with a natural scientific and mathematical brain I fell into studying ‘Sports Technology’ at Loughborough University; undeniably the best sports university in the UK (and if you ask me, the best outside the US) and arguably a top engineering university in the UK. It fit like a glove. There seemed to be only one option (in my mind) for a career path, and true enough I successfully applied to become a Functional Trainee for Product Creation here at adidas. I am currently still undertaking and learning day-in day-out from this brilliantly diverse and opportunity-riddled program. As my passion for sport is so intense, naturally, I play one (I also play the rest when I can, but this is my main focus). American Football, it seemed to choose me when I turned 18 and since then I have grown to play at an international level (yes I know it's the GREAT BRITAIN team for AMERICAN football – but hear me out) I also play for the Nürnberg Rams, local to Herzo HQ. My position? Quarterback.
