- How did you get into paddling?
I started kayaking when I was 16 to try and improve my ski paddling for Surf Life Saving.
- What has been your biggest accomplishment in the sport so far?
5x junior/U23 Australian Team member
- What keeps you busy outside of paddling? What is your current occupation and/or university degree?
Outside of paddling, I am studying a Bachelor of Business Management, Real Estate and Property Development. I also love surf life saving and spend my spare time at these competitions.
- Who has been the greatest influence on your career?
My biggest influence comes from my family. My mum, dad and sister have always supported me in everything I have wanted to do. Their encouragement and belief is what guides, supports and lifts my padding. My biggest inspiration is Lisa Carrington. Lisa Carrington has a backstory that is completely relatable, therefore making the dream feel possible.
