How long have you been playing for? 

Since I was 5 or 6 years old. 

Who do you look up too as a role model? 

I always looked up to my dad as a basketballer. He was such a good shooter and always use to kick my butt in the backyard. He was the one that made me want to get better. 

What would you say your absolute goal is for basketball? 

To represent Australia at an Olympic Games. 

What has been your biggest challenge as a basketball player growing up? 

 The constant grind, work, time and effort to just improve. 95% of what we do is not seen so the continued effort to stay on court and injury free, as well as staying motivated would be the hardest thing.
