Profile

First Car: Ford BA Falcon XR6 Ute

Grew Up: Grew up in Ocean Grove, which is down on the Bellarine Peninsula 

Outside of motorsport: I'm a printing press operator by trade, and my hobbies include going downhill mountain bike riding and jet skiing.  

Favourite book/movie: I love all of Ross Bentley's Speed Secrets Books, and my Favorite Movie is definitely "Kenny"

Started Racing: I started racing karts when I was 11 years old, then moved into cars when I was 19. 

Funny story about your time in motorsport: I fell asleep in the team's tent after a big day of practice at the World Karting Championship in France. While I was sleeping, I missed the drivers briefing, which resulted in a 350 Euro fine and nearly being sent home... Wasn't funny at the time but it certainly is now!

What made you want to join Evolve Driving: The Evolve days have such an incredible atmosphere thanks to a fantastic group of both instructors and clients, and I wanted to be part of the fun! 

Motivation: It's so rewarding to be able to watch and help people improve their on-track driving skills across an Evolve day, and I love seeing the joy on people's faces when it all "clicks". Favorite saying would be "Wake up determined, go to bed satisfied".
