I started competing in memory sports in 2008, having first encountered basic memorisation techniques at a young age. Since then I have taken part in competitions in the UK, USA and Austria, as well as appearing on the Chinese TV show "The Brain". I am currently 12th in the official IAM world rankings and hold 4 IAM world records.

I also co-created memorisation & recall software that is now being used for IAM competitions across the world:
