At what age did you start playing Bowls? 13 years old

Why did you take an interest in Bowls? A family friend suggested I should try Bowls and I was instantly hooked! I love everything about the game.

Most memorable match? I have had a few memorable matches playing for New Zealand but winning my first National title (pairs) is certainly a special memory for me. 

Greats influence in Bowls? It is hard to pick just one person as I have played with and against some great players. I am influenced by each and every one of them.

Toughest opponent? Probably the Aussies. We always have great battles against them.

Aspiration in Bowls? To represent my country for as long as I can. One of my goals is to compete at the Commonwealth Games.

Advice for new players? Consistency is the key. Practice as much as you can and "groove" your delivery.
