Favourite outdoor activities: Rock climbing and trail running.
Must do adventure in NZ: Rock climbing at Little Babylon in Fiordland has been a highlight for an avid climber as myself.
To do wish list: Reach the top of Mitre Peak.
Before moving to New Zealand I was a member of the National Italian Rowing team. I have won multiple world championships and competed at London 2012 Olympics.
After leaving the athlete life I moved to New Zealand to pursue my dream of producing beer! Today I am a brewer at Cassels and Sons, a local brewery in Christchurch.
But after a few years off the competition rush is calling me back into action!
I have competed in the Peak to Peak Winter Multisport race in Queenstown coming 5th in the men’s individual and then 2nd in my first ever ultra-run at Crater Rim.
And don’t forget the Further Faster fave, the Mt Hutt Peak to Pub which is always a great day out!
Fave piece of kit from Further Faster: La Sportive Bushido shoes.
Fun fact: I am not a fan of hiking - it’s either run or nothing!
