I was born and grew up in Orbost, Australia and loved fishing at an early age with my father Tom and fellow fishing mate/mentor Allan.

Have since moved to Yinnar, married to a very tolerant wife, Lynley. Spent most of my life bait and fly-fishing until introduced to competition lure fishing about 6 years ago and now enjoy the Hobie Bream series, meeting other mind like fisho’s, competing in areas of Australia that I would never have fished.

The thought of representing Australia has been a big motivation in travelling thousands of kilometers each year in these professionally run Hobie tournaments.

Never bream fished the Gold Coast before so look forward to another new experience and what it may bring.
