The Castle Hill resident’s favourite sport is lawn bowls — closely followed by soccer.

How often do I practice/play?

Two to three times a week. 

Greatest achievement so far?

Australian Open semi-finalist, NSW state runner–up. Winning my first club championship with my mum.

What do I hope to achieve?

Personally, to win a state and national title. To encourage more young people to play lawn bowls in our local area and for the game to be widely recognised as a competitive and challenging sport for people of all ages.
