BORN NOVEMBER 6TH 1970 in Brisbane Australia, he developed in the local South Australian junior leagues where he was the Most Improved Player with the Under-17 Eagles in 1984. He joined the A-grade Blackhawks as a forward and first represented Australia in the National Youth Team (U18) in 1987. He won back-to- back Goodall Cups representing South Australia in 1990 and 1991, then again in 1995. Although his state did not win in 1992, he was among the best Goodall Cup players and selected to the Australian All-Star line with Dean Pollock and Joey Delisle up forward, and state goalie teammate, Bruce Poling, Rob Avey and Mike Harrow in defence.

He represented Australia three times at senior level in the World Championships. First, at Hull in England in the 1992 C-Pool where Australia won bronze coached by Ryan Switzer; then in the 1994 C-Pool in Spain again coached by Switzer; and the 1995 D-Pool in South Africa coached by Dan Reynolds. He played with the Adelaide Blackjacks in 1995 in the series at Ringwood Iceland in Melbourne, then in 1998 he won a fourth Goodall Cup representing the Australian Capital Territory. A foundation player in the Australian Ice Hockey League with the Adelaide Avalanche in 2000, he won the inaugural AIHL championships back-to-back in 2000 and 2001 and also played the 2002 season. Five years later in 2007 he returned to the AIHL for a season with the Canberra Knights.

He was Coach of a new ACT Midget league formed in 2014 and he and his wife Tanya led the development of the CBR Junior Brave and its inclusion in the NSW Midget League in 2015. It was the first ACT Midget team in seven years due to a shortage of players and he coached the team to League runner-up in its first season. In 2015, he was assistant coach of the CBR Brave in the AIHL and in 2016 he played in the CBR Brave Spring Classic with Team Brunt to raise funds for junior players representing Australia in Spain. The team was captained by his son, Jordan, who also played his first AIHL game for the CBR Brave that season.
