Biography

Had to bang down the door for the opportunities that are now coming his way in the NBL firstly at the Cairns Taipans and now as he returns home to join the South East Melbourne Phoenix.

Has always been a prodigiously talented guard and has never been lacking in self-confidence, but has had to work remarkably hard to get a chance to show what he was capable of at a professional level.

Having grown up in Melbourne and attending De La Salle College, spent four years at college firstly at Skagit Valley College and then Newman University in Wichita, Kansas, before beginning his long road to the NBL.

His first taste in the league was as a development player at the Adelaide 36ers for the 2019/20 season but it was through his NBL1 South form at the Knox Raiders that he earned another opportunity.

He initially joined the Cairns Taipans just as a training player in the 2021/22 season before being signed as injury replacement player and ending up impressing in the eight matches he played, showing no fear up against the league's superstars.

Then had a standout NBL1 North season at the Cairns Marlins before signing on in the NBL with the Taipans, where he had a breakout season proving himself a feisty and productive guard in the league.

Now on the back of a terrific NBL1 South season with the Sandringham Sabres leading them to the Grand Final, he will embark on his career with the Phoenix.
