My story

I’m a personal trainer and group fitness instructor with 18+ years of experience. Originally from Australia, I’m now based in New York City. Since 2017, I’ve taught group classes at Equinox in everything from cycling to HIIT workouts to weightlifting.

I was born in Melbourne, Australia, where I was diagnosed with epilepsy at age four. I was in and out of the hospital until a successful brain surgery at age 11. My family wasn't very athletic, but my health has always been important to me. I joined my first gym at 15, and fitness quickly became a constant in my life.

Working out taught me persistence, discipline, and resilience, and showed me that hard work pays off. As a personal trainer, I instill those values in my clients — and that's why they see results.
