When and why did you start playing bowls?
I started playing bowls competitively at the age of 16, but I have been around the game for as long as I can remember watching my dad and grandparents play.
Which model(s)/size of Taylor bowls do you enjoy playing with and why?
I am currently using size 3 Redline-SR. I enjoy playing with them because of the line they take and I have confidence in them. I have always played well using Taylor Bowls and have had success with them in Australia and New Zealand.

One of the highlights of my bowling career has to have been wearing the maple leaf for Canada, alongside my dad who was also playing at the 2016 World Championships in Christchurch, NZ.

I admire my dad the most in the bowling world. He has taught me so much about the game, about dedication and perseverance. He has contributed tremendously to all of my successes I’ve had over the years.
