At Parafed Waikato I work to provide sporting opportunities for people with physical disabilities. I have a degree in Sport and Exercise Science and I’m part of the Waikato Wheelchair Rugby team.
The opportunities that I have had from being involved in sport have been much greater than I have ever imagined. I’ve been able to travel the world playing Wheelchair Rugby, I’ve met so many awesome people and have had lots and lots of fun.
I want to encourage every person with a disability to be involved in sport or physical activity.
If you are thinking about getting involved in a sport or want to talk about what opportunities are available for you, please give me a call. I’d love to hear from you.
I started working for Parafed Waikato in April 2018 in the role of project manager and 6 months later my position changed to the sports development officer. I am looking forward to strengthening our current sports as well as developing further sporting opportunities for our athletes and focusing on our youth. I am married to Glyn and we have 2 adult daughters. Both Glyn and myself are very passionate about sports and he also works in the sporting sector.
