Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Danielson in Karate Kid back in 1987. When the sport of MMA arrived it was a natural progression and I quickly discovered that the only mention of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of kicking the winning goal for Brisbane Roar, flying a jet plane, racing a F1 car and hiking the Swiss Alps. My family is numero uno.
