Passionate, Determined and a Joker.

I am a fitness fanatic and am incredibly dedicated to my training and nutrition as such. I feel that as hard as I work I need to make sure that I put the right stuff back into my body and use the best possible products and equipment available, to make sure that I stay on top of my game. I have a very good name within the hockey community, people trust and value my opinion, this is why I started my Goalkeeping academy GK ELITE to share my knowledge and experience with the next generation, I am also a qualified Strength and Conditioning Coach as well as a Sports Massage Therapist which adds value to my coaching and own game and training!

I am aiming to be part of the South African Men’s Hockey Team right through to and after the 2020 Olympic Games, which as a core member of the team is very likely.
