More About Me
I am a 21-year-old and have played soccer ever since the age of 4; I have also spent the last 5 years looking at developing and enhancing my coaching experience. During the 2015/16/17 seasons, I took responsibility of coaching the Hervey Bay United Warriors U11, U12 & U13 side who, in the Fraser Coast competition played 2 grand finals, (winning 1 of these) as well as achieving a minor premiership. During the same period, I volunteered to help coach for Cameron Hanrahan from the Fraser Coast’s SOAR Football Academy who works with eager footballing youth from clubs in and around Hervey Bay and Maryborough. Since moving to Brisbane in 2019, I have been working for Gold Coast based SoccerX (managed by Justin McKay and Sam Smith) in their after (primary) school programs offered within Brisbane. It is my dream to be able to help children, teenagers and adults to achieve the best in their games on my way to eventually becoming a professional coach.

I am entering my 17th year of playing football and 7th year as a goalkeeper. I played for Hervey Bay’s United Warriors FC for my first 14 years and at 16 years of age had worked hard to be named Goalkeeper for the United Warriors Men’s First Team in the Wide Bay Premier League. In 2017, for the first time, we reached the league grand final but unfortunately lost 2-1.
As a result of selection during the Joey’s Mini World Cup held in Inverell, NSW in 2016 I had the opportunity to travel to Germany in 2017 to spend time training with club SV Elversberg. At the close of the 2017 season, having spent my entire footballing life (14 years) with the one club, Hervey Bay United Warriors Football Club honored me with Lifetime Membership.
In January 2018 I moved to Brisbane and have spent the last 2 seasons with UQFC. During 2018 I played with the U20's and BPL Reserves and during the 2019 season, I made my first appearance in the UQFC Men’s Brisbane Premier League team.
Athletes can expect professionally run sessions that can focus on issues related to their individual game or generic sessions that are run to improve several aspects or skills of the game. Sessions consist of a dynamic, football specific warm up followed by in depth exercises specific to the athlete's identified problem, skill or aspect being examined and developed or modified in the session. The athlete will also receive in depth verbal feedback throughout the session to allow for an holistic learning opportunity.
