“I grew up in the Sutherland shire, went to school locally and studied at Australian Catholic University. I developed a love for all sports and was lucky enough to travel NSW and Australia with representative soccer. I always enjoyed learning about the body, how it moves, recovers, what works and what doesn’t in preparation for sport, fitness and life? I’m always curious, never ignorant and hope to never stop learning. I try to improve everyone I coach and always keen for a good laugh!”
