Other Interests

Health & Nutrition

I am a bit of a health and fitness fanatic. I am a big fan of Precision Nutrition. I have also been a lacto-ovo vegetarian since 1995.

Martial Arts

I enjoy training in free-style martial arts. I currently hold a black belt at Cobra Martial Arts Academy.


I am rather fond of middle-distance running. I try to run 10km once or twice a week, as long as it is not too hot. My best recorded effort was in the Perth 2010 12km City to Surf. I intend to run a marathon at some point. I trained for a marathon a couple of years ago, and even got as far as running a half marathon, but unfortunately I had to pull out due to illness.

Resistance Training

I try to get to the gym at least a couple of times a week.

In the past, I have done my fair share of lifting weights, and I still use weights for a few exercises, but these days I tend to incorporate a lot more body-resistance exercises such as pushups, situps, chin-ups and dips into my routine.


Swimming is not my favourite form of exercise, but it sure beats running when it is 35oC outside.
