What’s really important to you?
My loved ones, my career and my sport.

What is something quirky about you?
I am somehow drawn to struggling sports teams! Melbourne Demons, Charlotte Hornets, New York Jets, Wigan Athletic… If it wasn’t for Melbourne Victory I would be a continually heartbroken cellar dweller.

What motivates you about the recruitment industry?
I know this sounds scripted, but I am honestly motivated by helping good people, who are passionate and care about their careers, get into good businesses and opportunities.

Your teammates would describe you as…
Effervescent, witty and trustworthy.
