What are you passionate about in life?
I’m passionate about spending quality time with my family and friends sharing good food and conversation. At home it’s about spending time with my lovely wife and our pup, checking out various outdoor spots around town, a long walk or grabbing a coffee.
My other passion is anything to do with team sports, be it watching it or participating in both competitive and social games. I’ve been playing competitive football and cricket since I was a little kid and as much as the body may sometimes not be capable of what my mind thinks it can, it is my way of breaking away from reality for a period of time and feeling like a kid again. I love being a part of a teams who are dedicated to the common goal and when things don’t go your way, the camaraderie amongst the team makes sure you are ready to do it all again next time.
What are your hobbies?
When it’s not about sport, I love spending time exploring our surroundings with my wife. We love exploring new restaurants and bars wherever we are. Travelling locally or abroad to me has always revolved around food and being in such a multicultural city (Sydney) you don’t have to travel too far to find something new. As of recently Yoga and Meditation has been an interesting thing to explore both from an injury management and mindfulness perspective.
What are the key values you live by?
The big one for me is honesty. Being Trustworthy and Trusting others around you builds the foundations of a team where we can hold each other accountable. Team Work is an important value to me and that I champion daily.
