More About Me
I have worked with teams groups and individuals coaching from young children to elite high school athletes. I have worked in both Sydney, Australia and in the US specifically in Denver. A lot of my camp work has been based on skill development and enhancement as well as making athletes game ready for high school, AAU, reps and college.

• BASKETBALL CAMP COACH | UNIVERSITY OF DENVER | 2016-2019
- Works with kids from young ages up to elite high school athletes to share knowledge, teach new skills and prepare them for an opportunity to play in the US college environment. Coached athletes, in groups, individually, organised team games and events, operated canteens and merchandise stand as well as interact with parents, coaches and team managers from all across the US.
• BASKETBALL COACH | | 2019
- Basketball coach at Hornsby Kuring-Gai basketball, currently involved in skills clinics and holiday camps for children from beginner up to representative or competitive levels. Involved working with children, building relationships, teaching, planning sessions and promoting a fun learning environment.
Played at the University of Denver (D1 NCAA) since 2016, and am currently playing with Hornsby Spiders in Waratah league since returning from the US. Currently training with the aim of playing professionally in the future.
I am to tailor sessions to the individual dependent on their game, skills, strengths, and weaknesses. I believe always on learning, understanding technique and then putting the new skill in a game like situation. Many skills only ever performed in drill or practice, fail in games because the athlete has not been adequately prepared by practicing at full speed.
I particularly enjoy coaching strong finishing around the basket, aggressive offense and body control.
