HOBBIES: Board games, golf and the odd PC game if I have some spare time.

SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT YOU THAT FEW PEOPLE KNOW: I’m the only Australian in my family.
HOW DID YOUR CRICKET CAREER BEGIN? My earliest memory is Kanga cricket.
DESCRIBE YOUR CRICKETING JOURNEY: I was always the shortest growing up, so I bowled offies and batted. I was more of a bowler throughout the years, but always preferred to bat. I gave up the ball a couple of years ago to focus on batting, which has been working out alright.
BEST MOMENT WITH THE STAGS: Being among the stands during First Grade T20s, best atmosphere and great chirp.
WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS AS A PLAYER: Happy to chew them or patient, fielding/pace if I’m not worried about the hamstrings.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVOURITE CRICKETERS? WHY? Mike Hussey, legend. Patty Cummins, humble. Marcus Stoinis, funny walk.
WHO DO YOU HATE FACING IN THE NETS? Saggers and Stacy. Appears as though they’ll bump you each ball then send through seeds.
WHAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING YOU’VE SEEN OR HEARD ON A CRICKET FIELD? Batsmen pausing the game to chunder next to the pitch.
