I grew up on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia where surfing is everyday life. I've been a surfer as long as I can remember; my Dad and my older brother surfed, so naturally I wanted to join in on the fun. My Dad pushed me into my first wave when I was about 3 years old and I never looked back.
I fell in love with competitive surfing and from a young age competed in local, regional, state level, pro junior and WQS contests. Being surrounded by high level surfers helped push me into the surfer I am today. I've always been very analytical and had a strong desire to learn about my sport, so moving into coaching was a natural step.
I am a Level 2 Certified Coach and Head Coach of the Canadian National Surfing Team. I’m proud to be an ambassador for Reef Canada, and a team rider for Aftanas Surfboards and Long Beach Surf Shop.
