1.           Red Dog AOTM, how do you feel about that?  

I'm really stoked and surprised! It's been great training with the squad leading into Busselton Ironman and I couldn't be happier with my result. Training with the squad differently gave me the extra push I needed.

2.           What attracted you to the club?

I grew up swimming at Yeronga pool and moved back to the area. It was the right time for me. I wasn't getting the results I wanted.

3.           How much training do you do at the moment?

Well I just had a week off for Christmas and New Years but will be back into 7 days a week again in January.

4.           Least favourite session and why?

Swim session, because growing up swimming twice a day turned me off it a bit.

5.           If you had one wish, what would it be?

Live a happy life with a big family. And race in Kona!

6.           Favourite motivational quote?

"Don't watch the clock; do what it does and keep going!" Sam Levenson 

7.           The one bit of advice I’d give to a newbie is… something I was told - at some point during your race look around and take it in, enjoy it.  

8.           My next race is… Ironman Australia 

9.           I couldn’t do what I do without… my partner and family, always supporting me.

10.       What do you do outside of triathlons?

Mostly work, I have a family food business. We cook all the American classic soul food. When I'm not working I will still be cooking, I do love to cook!

11.       What’s your one guilty pleasure? 

I would have to say chips, fried chips, potato chips, corn chips.
