Who have been the biggest influences in your football career?
First and foremost, my parents have played a very significant role in my football journey and I’m very grateful to have had their support over the years.
I’ve been very fortunate to have played for a number of great coaches, particularly Drew Taylor who I had for my last three seasons with the North Shore Mariners. I also really enjoyed being coached by Danny Hurwitz and Larry Bates and learnt a lot during my time with all of these coaches.
Which clubs have you previously played for?
I started playing when I was five with my local club, the Chatswood Rangers. I joined Manly United in the Under 12’s and stayed there for seven seasons before moving across to the North Shore Mariners. I spent a solid six seasons at Northbridge before joining the Tigers this year.
What do you enjoy most about playing for Northern Tigers?
My favourite thing about Tigers is the club culture. I’ve been really impressed by the camaraderie across the club and in particular by the overwhelming support we have received from the mens squad this year.
What position do you play? Have you always played there?
I’ve spent the majority of this season playing on the wing, a position I had never really played until this year. I’ve mostly played in the midfield through the years but don’t mind mixing it up.
Do you have a favourite club/player? Who/why?
To be honest, I mostly followed AFL and the Sydney Swans growing up and didn’t watch too much soccer. However, over the last few years I’ve really started getting behind the Matildas and my favourite player is Sam Kerr.
What is your best football memory?
When I was about 15/16 I was lucky enough to travel to Malaysia for a futsal tournament which was a very special experience.
