Growing up I had a very different life to most kids, spending a lot of time in hospital fighting through multiple medical conditions and major surgeries. When I was 2.5 years old I had already; battled cancer, lost my hearing and speech as a side effect of chemo, and then suffered near heart failure at the age of 12, pneumonia at age 14 which had me in a hospital bed for 3 months, and finally a heart transplant in 2001 at the age of 15.
My aspiration was to be a professional athlete but with so many health setbacks I instead set myself on a mission to help others achieve their dream of becoming an athlete.
On the positive side my medical battles has developed me into the man I am today. I have the perseverance and the mental resilience to overcome just about any obstacle; and made the decision to use this along with my passion for sport and fitness to help people coming from a similar walk of life to reach optimal performance.
My goal is to show people that even when you think you've hit rock bottom, you can still come out on top. I've been there, I've done it and I know you can too!
After completing my Bachelor of Applied Science (Sport + Exercise Science) in 2012, I launched 360 Strength + Performance on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in 2013 followed by the opening of my very own facility in Warriewood in 2016. I continue to educate myself by working alongside allied health professionals, mentors and many other sport performance coaches within the industry. I want to better myself as a coach so I can better you as a client.
Outside of the business, I like to escape into the outback of NSW and/ or Australia in my 4WD and explore what this amazing country has to offer. Otherwise, you’ll find me active in the outdoors either rock climbing, surfing, wakeboarding or snowboarding. I definitely enjoy a good bbq and a whisky or beer with mates.
P.s. I never gave up my aspiration to be an athlete and later competed locally in olympic lifting. I am now training to compete at the Sydney Cup Powerlifting Comp in November 2018.
