How did you hear of the Toronto Dingos? 

I got a random text that said “Oi c$@#! Get some beers and come over!”. I soon met Timmy McKay our former captain’s Shawn McKay’s brother. He took me to my first training session the following week and the rest is history.

What Club did you play prior to the Dingos? 

Growing up I played soccer and American football. I had a quick stint of playing footy while living in Melbourne for the Williamstown CYMS Reserves.

How do you find the cross over, what is difficult/easy? 

It wasn’t too bad the most difficult skill for me to pick up was kicking the footy properly.

What do you like best about the game? 

I love how supportive everyone is of each other throughout the highs and lows of the game. I also love how immediately gained 30 plus new friends.

What are your favourite things about being a Dingo? 

The social events throughout the year and the footy trip at the end of the season are loads of fun. I also live that there’s usually always someone free for a beer.

What is your favourite thing about Toronto? 

There are so many things to love about Toronto. There’s always some kind of festival going on, concerts, sporting events and so many amazing restaurants and bars to checkout.

So far, who is your favourite Dingo and why? 

It’s too hard to choose but Robbo has always been there for me since I joined the club. He’s always making sure the new guys feel comfortable and welcomed to the club. He’s a genuine person that puts the clubs and other peoples’ needs before his own.

Tell us something that none of us know about you! 

I use to do Ukrainian dancing throughout elementary school and most of high school.

What are your goals for this Season? 

Win the flag!!!!!
