Gaz started shooting small-bore at Uppingham School in 1989, but quickly moved on to full-bore when he discovered weekend trips to Bisley. He progressed to senior international honours via the Athelings, and now shoots regularly for Wales (he has 23 National and Mackinnon match appearances to his name) as well as representing them at the last two Commonwealth Games, and winning a Gold Medal at the 2010 CSF championships.

He has also shot for GB, in the Australia match in 2010 and in the Kolapore earlier this year, which brought him tantalisingly close to his goal of completing his ‘Big 5’ (he was one of the 2 reserves for the 2007 Palma match). His aim is to complete the set on this, his 4th GB tour, second Palma team, but first tour to Australia.

Away from the range, he is husband to Katrina and father to Samuel, and has recently started a new job as a programme manager in Wipro Consulting’s retail arm. Non-ballistic hobbies include cookery and wine; although he has recently developed a healthy obsession with trying to grow his own ingredients.
