What is the Nature of your injury or illness?

What role has sport played in your rehabilitation?

Sport has given me a goal to work towards and keeps me fit and healthy.

What is your greatest achievement to date?

I kayaked across Bass Strait with very limited training. We got stuck on Flinders Island for a couple of weeks due to bad weather but were still able to complete the crossing.

Why did you apply for the Invictus Games?

I wanted to be involved in a team and represent my country again. I also wanted to compete alongside other serving and former serving military personnel.
