Who has been the most influential person or people in your career and why?

My coach Sandro would be one of them. He took me under his wing when I was in early high school, which was a huge change and benefit to my jumping, especially given his experience and history coaching the some of the best Australian high jumpers - including Tim forsyth. He's a great mentor and certainly helped me navigate through some tough periods for which I'm very grateful.

Spending time with my crazy brothers (3 of them), gaming, making music and random videos.

What is your sporting ambition?

To break the Australian high jump record, and in general to see how high I can possibly go.
