I have a passion for all things sport and keeping physically active myself. I participated at state level athletics and have been actively involved in coaching our representative teams at zone or higher levels. Killara High School has a strong history of football (some of you may call it soccer) and I have been coaching the Under 15 soccer coach the previous years and had great success in the Bill Turner Cup, My weekend time is spent at the beach in the surf and playing golf poorly.

I have several sporting passions and they are Rugby League (St George Illawarra Dragons Supporter), Soccer (follow English Premier League & Socceroos) and Formula One The 'great' Mark Webber.

Along with Mr Petkovski, I am one of the Sports Organisers here at Killara High School. A job I really enjoy doing. In school knockout sport, I coach the Girls Volleyball, Boys Touch and Rugby League teams and I really enjoy teaching and coaching the game of Speedaway, an invasion game specific to Kuring gai Zone. Outside of school, I enjoy playing golf and hanging out with my two young fella's, Patrick and Tim. I am big supporter of the Parramatta Eels in the NRL and The Central Coast Mariners in the A League.
