How long have you been playing disc golf?

3 Years

What are five discs you ALWAYS have in your bag?

I can't live without my Chief OS, Pyro, Koi, Interceptor or Crave!

What is your favorite disc golf course you've ever played?

It's gotta be our 'Splendour in the Basket' course that's temporarily set up each year. It's situated in an area that's used for an annual music festival, so it has heaps of elevation change paired with gorgeous natural surroundings and hazards. It's challenging, but quite unique in comparison to the rest of our courses.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I'm from Australia where disc golf is nowhere near as huge as it is overseas. Regardless, I'm a high school teacher and this year I managed to successfully incorporate disc golf into our students' schooling! The H.P.E. department have reported students are engaging with it quite positively too! In 2022, I'm hoping to further encourage students to engage with our disc golfing equipment.

Who is your favorite disc golfer and why?

I really appreciate the work Kristin Tattar and her partner Silver do for the community in Estonia so I have a large amount of respect for them. She always appears to conduct herself quite professionally during tournaments and has great form, so she's always fun to watch play. Hopefully we'll be able to see her competing much more this year in the DGPT! 

Where do you see yourself as a disc golfer in 5 years?

My biggest goal is to eventually be invited to and play at a competitive level in the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships. So I'll be working towards improving my consistency and skills until then!

Anything else you want the world to know about you?
I'm a huge fan of trying different or unique discs from smaller companies. If you have any great suggestions that may have slipped me by, please shoot me a dm!
