What do you do outside of training? Outside of training I enjoy hanging out with friends, relaxing and from time to time, I enjoy going on international holidays. I also don’t mind sitting in front of the TV and watching sport, especially if the mighty Canberra Raiders are playing.
I currently work as an Aeronautical Information Specialist at Airservices and have been doing this for the past 5 years, and it definitely keeps me on my toes but I do enjoy my job.
If Money and Career were no object, where in the world would you choose to live? I would have to say Thailand, I think it would be such a great experience to go over there and immerse myself into the culture and train everyday - twice a day!
TV Show you secretly enjoy? My wife got me into it but I don’t mind the Real Housewives of Sydney and Melbourne. I don’t have much time to watch them at the moment due to work and training, but I can always find time if my wife records it.
What was the best advice you were given? Always face your fears head on and never give up, no matter how tough things get.
Favourite fighter and why? My favourite Muay Thai fighter is recently retired, Yodsenklai Fairtex. I remember watching him on Contender Asia. I admired the way he carried himself in and out of the ring (courage, respect and honour) he was the reason why I started doing Muay Thai.
Which class do you like best? My favourite class would have to be Sparring. It’s a great way to challenge yourself and friends in a controlled environment, and execute everything you have learnt from the other classes.
What is your favourite part of class? Seeing like minded people bring the best out of each other and support each other, I think this os why Chopper Muay Thai stands out from any other Muay Thai gym in Canberra, everyone at Chopper is willing to help each other.
