Originally from Melbourne, I played Soccer up until 16. After making the move to footy i quickly picked up the skills and game sense to play senior football at an early age. Playing in strong country and metro football leagues in Victoria I was privy to quality training standards and coach/player dynamics.
Around the age of 20 I would attend an AFL game at the MCG and would find myself watching different parts of the game to where the ball happened to be. My interest in the strategical side of the game and off the ball running or positioning caught my attention as much as Chris Judd or Garry Ablett Jr winning their 20th contested possession of the game. I knew I had a passion for wanting to coach and decided to take every opportunity to better my knowledge.
I studied at Victoria University for 4 years completing my degree in Sports Coaching, this course really showed me the importance of effective communication and being an active listener. In my experience, it is vital for a player to be heard and understood in order to help them.
At the age of 24 I moved to Mackay by myself to take on Senior Coach responsibilities at Bakers Creek Football Club. The experience allowed me to work with players aged 15-35yrs and really opened my eyes to the challenges and rewards that the coaching lifestyle brings.
In November 2017 I moved down to the Gold Coast in order to further my football coaching aspirations. I was fortunate enough to make the Southport Sharks NEAFL list for the 2018 season while coaching representative football through the Gold Coast Suns.
My strengths are being able to quickly build rapport and trust with my players as we work to improve their game. I invest in all my players.
When you find your passion like I have it is an amazing feeling to be able to help someone in their quest to better themselves.
Not only will I help you at our sessions but I will make myself available to attend some of your matches.
