I’ve played footy since I can remember. Red dirt ovals, bare feet, raw footy, mates, laughs, fun.
I’ve coached junior footy since I started with the Clontarf Academy- the Halls Creek Colts. Next I coached my home team, the Halls Creek Hawks Seniors to two premierships. After a move to the Northern Rivers I coached the Lismore Swans Woman’s team to two premierships too. Then I got selected for the Brisbane Lions Jesaulenko Internship. Then I was selected as the assistant coach for the Gold Coast Suns Northern Rivers Academy, a role I had to leave when I was offered the Garnduwa Kimberley Spirit Pathway Coordinator Position. I have liased with clubs all over Australia to support the recruitment of several Kimberley drafts. And in the Garnduwa KSP role I work closely with Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles. You could kind of say I live and breathe footy.
I’ve been working with mob who have moved away to boarding school and even helped mentor successful remote Aboriginal players in their first years as AFL players.
So I’ve got some ideas for home town coaches and teachers, city club coaches as well as ideas for AFL programs.

Need help supporting your players- I’d love to have a yarn.
