Most influential person in career Cuban revolutionary Camilo Cienfuegos. (Athlete, 28 Nov 2011)
Hero / Idol French rugby union player Sebastien Chabal. (Athlete, 28 Nov 2011)
Sporting philosophy / motto "It's the nature of sport that you always set your sights higher once you have achieved anything. So my philosophy is based around sport being a vehicle for the development of the whole self, rather than just of the sporting self." (castore.co.uk, 20 Sep 2016)

Ambitions To compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (britishfencing.com, 01 Apr 2015)
Other information TIME ABROAD
In 2013 he relocated from the UK to Copenhagen, Denmark. "I have a fantastic sport/life balance here. There are a small but very dedicated group of fencers in Copenhagen who are such a pleasure to train with. It is a fantastic environment to be a part of. I work in a performance coaching capacity and that has given me an opportunity to gain perspective on a lot of things relating to my own performance." (cphpost.dk, 31 Jul 2016)

DANISH FEDERATION
In January 2017 he was named performance director for the Danish Fencing Federation. (LinkedIn profile, 2017)

ACTING DEBUT
In 2011 he appeared in a music video for Two Spot Gobi. The six-piece band from Brighton, England, are his favourite musicians. The video saw him appear in his full fencing gear, sparring against fellow British fencer Ed Jefferies. "I'm pretty much their biggest fan but the acting was weird. When we did the winning scene, with an audience of people I didn't know, I had to do it seven or eight times. It was horrible." (bbc.co.uk 10 May 2011)
