Bio:  Tena koutou,
Born in Rotorua, raised in Feilding and Perth, Australia, I moved back to Manawatu in 1994 to attend Massey College of Education. During that time I aligned myself with Feilding Old Boys. I started out coaching when I had a serious injury and took the reins with the clubs U19 team in 2000. Since then, I have played sporadically for the club but have mainly coached at various levels. I enjoy coaching all levels but get a lot of satisfaction coaching at a youth level due to the amount of fun and learning that occurs. I am looking forward to the 2017 representative season and working with our future Turbos.
