My Main Skills
I work in the legal profession and understand how important it is to listen, communicate clearly and convert information to be easily understood. I am also a big advocate of mental health awareness, so am always willing to listen and respond to any ups and downs you may experience throughout your fight camp journey.
I have been in the ring for corporate fighter under those big lights 3 times, so understand what it takes to remain calm, composed and set your mind on the end goal – to walk out of there knowing you did your best, win or lose. The first time I completed fight camp, I did not miss a single training session – you will only get out as much as you put in – so it is important to set that goal, show up, and put 110% into it. I will be there with you every step of the way and understand the emotional and physical roller coaster you will experience.
More about me
I am passionate about providing a difference in law and policy to ensure it is fair and just for all. I am also very passionate about mental health awareness and have participated in mental health response workshops to better equip me to recognise the signs of poor mental health. I like to participate in any challenges that I can that raise money and awareness, and truly believe we can all play an active role in doing so.
On the weekends you can find me in the gym or relaxing at the beach. I am not one to say no to a social event especially when it involves spending time with friends and family.
Boxing runs in my blood with my grandad, dad and brothers all training and competing in boxing and kickboxing. Growing up with 3 brothers, I would often be tagging along to their training sessions, observing and jumping in when I could. I personally never really gave it a good crack until 2019, when I joined up for Corporate Fighter. Since then, I have gained different experience by training with different types of coaches, including BJJ, boxing and kickboxing – even some that have trained Pro and Olympic fighters – as well as from my own family.
I am extremely competitive, and love to focus on technique and speed, especially using the jab to keep your opponent at bay.
