My Story

My journey in football began at the age of 11 at a local football club in Hornsby. Like many others, I aspired to play football at a professional level. For several years I was involved at a representative level in New South Wales before relocating to play overseas in America. Eager to help the next generation to develop, and keep up with the rest of the world, I returned home where I was offered an academic scholarship to study Sport Science/Exercise Physiology at The University of Sydney. Alongside studying I continued to be involved in the game as a coach, aiding a local club before moving on to coach at State Titles, NPL 1 Club, Northern Tigers & several prestigious football schools such as Knox Grammar and St Pius College. I currently am an accredited Exercise Scientist & Exercise Physiologist and hold an FFA C-License and Football Conditioning License. I am now aiming to assist Australian football take a leap forward in achieving its full football potential by prioritizing the development in its youth.
