Veteran | Gold Medallist | Husband | Father | Survivor
It was Australia Day 2015.
I woke up to find myself in a living nightmare.
I was fighting an internal battle against post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety. I then broke my neck and back in a mountain bike accident. It felt like I was walking through the valley of the shadow of death.
Three years later I represented Australia in indoor rowing and powerlifting at Invictus Games Sydney 2018 and was fortunate to win two gold medals. Today, I am a proud Australia Day Ambassador and support mental health, veterans and sport.
THE FIRST AND GREATEST VICTORY
IS TO CONQUER YOURSELF – PLATO
