Give us 5 words that best describe you as an athlete:

Strong, dedicated, confident, focused, motivated

What makes you different:

I am open to new learning opportunities, am growth-focused and I thrive on taking challenges head on. I am positive and able to motivate both my friends and teammates to work effectively in a team. My confidence and good communication skills allow me to be comfortable in unknown and unfamiliar environments.


I hope to be not only a contribution to my team’s success but to be a stand out player that my teammates can depend on in big moments. I want to win championships and make history at my college. I would like to carry on with the degree I am currently doing which is a BA General and later finish that degree with flying colors. I want to play at the highest level possible at my college, and I want to be a stand out player for my college when we win championships. My long term goal would be to play in Major League Rugby.

Anything else we should know?

I am currently coaching rugby at a school called The Ridge and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a passion for most sports and have competed at a high level in not only rugby but cricket, soccer and swimming. My plan is to become a sports journalist after my rugby career but I would also like to explore the possibilities of coaching in the sports world.
