Personal Values and Philosophy

I am a stage one member of the NZ PGA traineeship program. Growing up on the Sunshine Coast QLD I backed onto the Peregian Golf Club where I lived and breathed golf. I worked with the green staff, the bar and restaurant and mainly the pro shop for eight years. The game has given me some great experiences. Ive been able to travel all of Aus and play in numerous amateur championships. In 2012/13 I gave the Australian Q School a crack however was unsuccessful. This lead me towards a new challenge in 2014,I joined the ADF as a Rifleman. From 2014 until 2018 I experienced so many physical and mental challenges that have lead me in good stead for my future ahead and a lot of life lessons that I now pass on. After my time in the military I fell back in love with the game and found that passion again. Which has lead to my move with my partner across the ditch and into a career in the golf industry and one that i know will bring a lot of happiness and success!

Favorite Golfing Quote/Moment

Watching Adam Scott clinch victory at the US masters and bring home the green jacket for the Aussies! "The man who does many things makes many mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all - doing nothing."
