I started playing football in 2004 for University of Sunderland Kings/Spartans on both Defensive and Offensive Lines; playing predominantly on the DL over 4 seasons.

After a couple of years away from Football I was invited to join the Peterborough Saxons where I started my coaching career as the Defensive Line Coach under Mike Fears and Head Coach, Chris Wallis. In my second season I took over as Defensive Coordinator: a position I held for two seasons with the Saxons, including the 2012 season where the Saxons were undefeated through the regular season.

I moved up to Assistant Head Coach for the 2013 season before taking a year away from Football, returning in 2015 as the Special Teams Coordinator for the Peterborough Saxons, where I stayed until the team folded.

Joining the Cats in 2017 was a challenge and opportunity too great to pass up and I was honoured to be able to join such a storied and successful organisation.

After installing a simple yet varied defensive strategy in my first year, I am looking forward to developing our system alongside Coach Fasulo and Assistant Defensive Coordinator, Ben Abbott, and working with a growing squad going in to year 2.
