I'm currently a full time beach volleyball athlete and in my spare time, a teacher! I was originally cut from the year 7 volleyball team but came back in a few years later and realised i loved the game. A few years later i discovered my real calling was beach volleyball. I played as much as i could during my time at university and train as much as i can whilst teaching. Me and my partner Owen Boland are currently aiming to raise funds to compete on the Swatch FIVB World Tour and you can check us out at http://www.teambs.com.au
