How did you first get involved in the sport?

My cousins played in Sydney and they loved it, so I started when I was 7 and have been playing ever since.

What is your favorite sporting moment?

Watching the Diamonds win Gold in 2015 in Sydney with a world record crowd.

What does a typical day at NACT look like for you?

A typical day, I couldn’t really tell you yet. No two days have been the same.

Outside of the office, what are your interests and hobbies?

I love listening to live music and watching any kind of sport.

If you had to plan a weekend for a friend in Canberra what would you do?

Start off with a morning hike up Mount Ainslie, then follow that up with coffee and breakfast at any one of the amazing cafes popping up all over Canberra. Then a nice afternoon on LBG Go-Boating. Sunday probably a driving tour of the sites… Parliament House, the Arboretum etc.
