BIOGRAPHY

I was born on March 20, 1985 and grew up in South West Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Never a fan of being stuck inside the classroom, when I was at school, I represented the community, district and state in almost every sport I could. Football, basketball, cross country, little athletics, swimming, touch football, golf – you name it, I played it. After years of early morning swimming training, night time footy practice and weekends spent racing from one sport to the next, I knew I had to choose one sport which I’d ultimately make a career of, and that choice was golf.

From age 12 to 18, I was selected to join the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation. It was here I nurtured my skills, and got a real taste of life as a competitive Golfer winning the Jack Newton Invitational, Springwood Junior Classic and Bathurst Junior Masters.

In 2005, I represented Australia in Dublin, Ireland and won the World Left-Handed Golf Championship and our team won the World Cup. In 2006, I represented Australia in Miyazaki, Japan where we once again won the World Cup and I finished 2nd at the World Left-Handed Golf Championship.

In 2009, I turned Pro and relocated to Ontario, Canada to compete in The Great Lakes Tour. With solid results, I finished 3rd on the Tour’s Order of Merit.

In 2011, I relocated to North Carolina to compete in The Hooters Golf Tour – Carolina Series. My results earned me several starts in The Hooters Golf Tour – Pro Series. During this time, I moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and joined the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy. A facility that can only be described as heaven on earth for golfing professionals, when I wasn’t on the road for tournaments, I’d be at the academy practicing and fine tuning every aspect of my game.

In 2012, I held my Tour Card at the PGA Tour of Australasia, and enjoyed playing in National and International tournaments on home soil alongside world champions including Bo Van Pelt, Jason Dufner, Greg Chalmers, Adam Scott, Edoardo Molinari and Charl Schwartzel just to name a few.

Over the last couple of years, I have focussed on tours in Asia. I have held tour cards for the PGA Tour China Series, Asian Development Tour and the Philippines Golf Tour. While playing in Asia, I’ve enjoyed many top 10 finishes – most recently, finishing 2nd in the Samoan Open.
