More About Me
I have had 20 years of experience basketball coaching, covering both beginners and elite levels. I also have 25 years’ experience as a player, reaching NBL level (Adelaide 36ers squad member for 3 years). I am extremely fit, now competing in Masters athletics (sprinting) where I have reached as high as 18th in the world in my age group and have won multiple Australian championship gold medals.
I consider my biggest strengths in basketball to be loyalty, maintaining a positive and energetic attitude, forming and maintaining personal relationships with players and coaches. My coaches and mentors have included Ken Cole, Phil Smyth, Gary Fox, Ian Laurie, Neil Glidden and Steve Johansen
