Started playing tennis when I was 11 years old in Ulladulla on the NSW South Coast. I was a South Coast representative at the NSW CHS tennis championships before moving to Canberra and attending Lyneham High. During my time in Canberra, I trained at the National Sports Club in Lyneham and played as many AMT tournaments as possible. After graduating from high school, my goal was to play college tennis in the U.S. I spent my freshman year at Ventura College, where our team were Junior College Champs of Southern California. I then transferred to Collin College in Dallas, Texas. I’m still currently enrolled there and am back here in Australia for the summer break.
