    Personal Overview:
    I am an Australian National with over 45 years of playing experience, I have a great passion for rugby & first started playing at 5 years of age for Coogee JRFC in Sydney, NSW Australia.
    After 5 years the club decided to divide its junior teams & a new club was formed, I then went on to play for South Coogee JRFC where I remained throughout my youth.
    I qualified & was selected to play representative rugby for NSW Juniors on several occasions, later in my career I went on to play in the Sub Division Rugby Competition for Lidcombe Rugby Club & Oatley Rugby Club.
    Wanting to take my rugby to a new level & continue in a family tradition I returned to Coogee where I grew up & tried out for Randwick DRUFC, I made my debut for Randwick 2nd Grade at 32 years of age after being selected from around 300 players.
    In 2005 I made my first of many trips to Argentina where I met with many rugby teams & clubs who showed interest in having me as part of their coaching staff but my playing days were not over, I was asked to play for Jockey Club in Cordoba, Argentina & played for ACV Rugby Club in Cordoba, Argentina.
    I continued to travel back & forth from Australia to Argentina, assisting coaching staff & playing.
    In 2008 I lived in Caracas, Venezuela where I assisted the coaching staff in developing rugby at Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV) before heading back to Sydney, Australia at the end of 2009.
