I joined the Total Sport whanau in July 2016 and haven’t looked back! Confucius said “choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life” that is exactly how I feel every day. Seeing people enjoying the events we put on and the smiles of achievement as people cross the finish line gives me warm fuzzies. That’s what drives me to give my all to Total Sport. I am a passionate adventurer and I strive to live life to the fullest and to make the most of every day. My two main passions are cycle touring and adventure racing and when I am not working that’s how I chill out. I feel privileged to work for a company that aims to be Inspiring, Innovative, Inclusive, Sustainable, and to operate with Integrity at all times.
I’ve been involved at Total Sport since day dot (2000) – first as a moral supporter, then as an event volunteer (back in the day when “event timing equipment” consisted of a clipboard, a blank sheet of paper and a pen!) and, since 2007, as a part-time team member involved mostly with the brand development and people side of the business. I feel very fortunate to be part of the Total Sport family – all of us share a passion for New Zealand’s stunning outdoors and Total Sport’s mission to deliver memorable, enriching experiences that add lashings of tasty soul food to the lives of so many!
Working with people who have the same passion for this stuff as I do, participants / workmates / suppliers and sponsors. I love creating a platform that encourages people to explore and discover their own potential with like minded people in stunning locations. It may sound a little cheesy but this is what makes this my dream job. On top of that there’s the course reccie’s, travel, and variety every week provides.
It’s a huge privilege to work with a company that isn’t slinging products or trying to get you to buy stuff you don’t need. Here at Total Sport we’re just about taking people to amazing locations for amazing experiences – and building a fabulous community around it. As an avid trail runner, tramper, and bird watcher, ours is a mission I stand behind 100%.
