A Bit About Me

I provide elite-level coaching to improve your physical & mental performance so you can have more confidence, play at your best and enjoy life more.

I believe that elite-level coaching should be accessible & affordable to all - not just the professionals. So if you want to perform at your best then you are in the right place. 

I have a range of resources & coaching options to help you take your game to a higher level no matter what skill level you are at or where you are from.

My Journey









Picked up by the GWS Giants when they first entered the AFL. Was also a member of the AIS-AFL Academy during 2011. Broke my leg, had 2 hip surgeries and only managed to play AFL pre-season games.

Joined Prokick Australia after getting de-listed by the Giants. Trained under Nathan Chapman to become a punter in American football. Earned a full scholarship to Louisiana State University (LSU).

Played Division 1 College Football at LSU while earning a degree in Kinesiology (Sport Science).

Transferred to West Virginia University to study a Masters degree in Sports Coaching.

Moved back to Australia. Played footy for the first time since 2013. Recognised the lack of high level coaching for local footballers. Gained my accreditation in Strength & Conditioning and transferred my masters degree to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

Started The Kicking Consultant after posting educational videos on social media to help people with their kicking; utilising what I learned from my experience in the AFL and as a punter in America.

Continued to provide helpful resources to improve people's kicking, such as my AFL Kicking Guide. Completed my Masters Degree in High Performance Sport with UTS.

Created the AFL Training Program to provide comprehensive elite-level coaching to local senior & reserves footballers all across Australia.
