Where are you from?

England, UK.

What sort of coach are you?

Enthusiastic, energetic, and empathetic! Strength and Conditioning focus on footwork and movement patterns.

Why do you coach?

I love building relationships with the players I coach and their families, seeing them improving, competing, enjoying and achieving their goals. I love watching my players develop into young people and I love working outdoors in an active job, and working in the sport I love every day!

Most memorable moment/s from your coaching so far

So many memorable moments from the tournament trips I’ve taken in Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Queensland; to when Gerard Hadianto qualified for the Nationals Super 10’s and then the following year qualifying for his first 12’s Nationals December Showdown; to seeing my players win their first tournament, or finally beating an opponent they’ve never beaten before; to taking the Performance squad to Cottesloe for beach fitness; to the individual moments when something finally clicks in a lesson, or when the whole squad has a great session and makes me proud! There are too many special moments with all of my players to name that make me proud to be a part of their tennis journey!
