Researcher biography

I have been a HPE teacher for 10 years, I am currently the Head of HPE at Ignatius Park College in Townsville. I have post grad qualifications in sports coaching, exercise science (S&C) and sports management and decided to do the MPhil as I think there are so many areas that need addressing within schools and sport. I would like go on and complete a PhD and plan to combine my work and research for many years to come. I am very passionate about the HPE/sports science field and enjoy sharing that knowledge and passion with my students. My other interests include fishing, reading and all things science fiction related. My wife, Natasha is a Maths teacher and we have a one year old daughter, Isabella.
