I was born on the 29th of July 1983 in Orange, New South Wales, Australia and still live there today. My parents built and opened the Orange Tenpin Bowl when I was just a few weeks old and I rolled my first ball when I was 18 months old. That’s the reason I bowl with #2hands, because I was too little in the beginning to use a traditional style. “The Bowl,” as it’s affectionately known to my family and I, is my home. It would be the place where I found who I was meant to be.
I won my first tournament when I was 4. It’s surreal to look at this picture and think after that day, my career would take me all over the world where I would bring home trophies a little bigger than these ones.
This is my family. I am married to Kimberly and we have 3 beautiful children (Aria, Hugo and Sylvie). They support me unconditionally and are a huge motivation to have success. I love them dearly.
Since joining the pro tour and being named the rookie of the year in the 2008/09 season, I have always been determined to better myself as a player each year. With each title and accolade I achieve, it focusses me even more to continue to push forward and never be content with where I am.
I have been so fortunate to have won titles on 5 continents as both an amateur and professional. The 3 most valuable trophies to me are my first regular tour trophy, my first major trophy and the World Cup. Bowling has taken me all over the world, seen things some only ever read about and met the most amazing people.
