I have a PhD in Exercise and Sport Science from the University of Exeter, with a specialist interest in performance psychology.  I live in beautiful North Devon with my Newfoundland dog, Gracie.  I train at CrossFit North Devon, and I also play tennis regularly.  I am an amateur photographer in my spare time!
