HUNGRY
Took a break since missing qualification for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. "To get so close to making the team and going down in a couple of tough decisions was very hard for me. I feel like the break did me a lot of good, and I feel so hungry to get to the top now and to train and work so hard that the decisions won't be left to the judges, it will be that blatant." (boxing.org.au; 6 Oct 2016)


SCHOLARSHIP
Awarded The Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship and Mentoring Program in October 2014. Mentored by former Australian cricketer, Adam GILCHRIST. (The Age, 6 Nov 2017; sahof.org.au, Oct 2014)

INSPIRATION
Received inspiration from fellow boxer, Danny GREEN (AUS), and cricketer, Adam GILCHRIST (AUS). "(Danny) is a good person to talk to about all the things I’m going through with boxing, because he’s obviously gone through the same stuff. Adam was really good. I caught up with him a bit and he’d talk to me before fights if I was nervous." (Comment News, 9 Jan 2019)
