Even after 20 years of being a physio I'm still so grateful to be in a position where I can have such a positive impact on people's health & their lives. I love working with clients & getting them back on track for a healthy & active future. I get even more of a kick out of helping my team develop so that they achieve these same great results for their clients as well.

I love our Central Performance vision of improving the health & lives of our clients & the Surry Hills community. The challenge & fulfillment of building a team that takes each client’s aspirations & goals, whether to win at the elite competitive level or just to feel great & have heaps of energy, & turn them into reality is what really gets me out of bed in the morning.

Working with my wonderful team to develop & deliver our great range of services that I know will keep people more active, healthier & having fun with their family & friends is the most inspiring part of my work. I also love seeing our athletes at the peak of their performance, especially knowing the work & training they’ve been through to get there.  I firmly believe that exercise should be fun, functional & whole-body – no more lines of boring machines & mindless workouts!

I have both undergraduate & masters degrees from Sydney University, & extensive experience in providing physio coverage for representative rugby teams in the UK.  Together with my lovely wife Jude, my weekends are usually spent having fun & playing sport with my beautiful kids Dan, Fin & Sophie. I’ve recently become addicted to Stand-up paddling & think it’s one of the best workouts around!

B. App Sc (Ex. Sp. Sc.)
Head of Running Performance
Certified Middle & Long Distance Running Coach

In my time as a runner I've had my fair share of injuries. 11 stress fractures, soft tissue injuries, tendinopathies - everything! So I know the frustration that goes with being injured & not being able to do the things you love. As a result I'm very reluctant to tell my clients to simply rest & do nothing until their injury heals. I'm always looking for ways to enable them to continue doing what they love. I love working with people motivated to get back to their best, who aren't content to just sit around & wait for the injury to get better.

As clinical team leader at Central Performance I specialise in treating running injuries & deliver our running biomechanical screening program as well as our running performance program. I'm extremely passionate about running & am also in charge of the running group here at Central Performance. There is no more satisfying feeling than exceeding your own expectations & I love watching the runners I coach do just that. With correct & consistent training great things can be achieved & I'm always looking for people prepared to go out of their comfort zone to see where their body can take them.

Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor

Through my years playing sport, I have had my fair share of injuries. This is what first introduced me to physiotherapy. Since then, I have developed a passion for helping people overcome their injuries. I love helping and motivating people to move and become active in their rehabilitation. I believe exercise and physical therapy is the best way of overcoming and preventing injury and it is something that I encourage throughout any rehabilitation program.

I have had extensive experience in the private physiotherapy sector, having working in a number of private practices. I have also worked as the South Sydney Juniors physiotherapist for 2 years which gave me great on-field and off-field acute injury management skills.

I completed my Masters of Physiotherapist at Macquarie University. Following that I completed my Pilates instructor certificate level 3 and run the Pilates classes and 1-on-1 sessions. I have also completed my ASCA level 1 in strength and conditioning.

APAM
Physiotherapist & Certified Remedial & Sports Massage Therapist

My first physio experience was at the age of 16 when I had a serious back injury. For the next 5 months I couldn’t play, run or even walk without having intense pain shooting down my leg.

Not knowing what to do, my mum took to me a physiotherapist. Within a month of treatment & pilates-based exercises I was completely pain free & back to playing sports with my friends! I remember it being an amazing journey & sparked my fascination with the human body.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science I practiced as a remedial massage therapist for several years. Even though my clients got great results I knew that exercise & strengthening was the missing component that I needed to create more long-lasting change.

I then graduated from the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at Macquarie University. This intense course combined study & research to greatly expand my knowledge on how to help clients more by using the latest evidence-based practice.

I have a drive for getting the best outcome for my clients & motivating them to achieve their goals. I also love keeping up to date with the latest research in the field of pain science & learning new techniques to achieve even better results.

In my spare time I love cooking up a storm for my friends & family!

Growing up playing football at representative level allowed me to truly grasp the value of sport & exercise, which I integrate with my hands-on based approach to treatment. I believe in giving clients a thorough understanding of their condition, & also the tools to not only return to a pre-injury state but also maximise strategies for injury prevention.

I graduated from the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at Macquarie University, an advanced masters course comprising of an additional year in research. This followed a Bachelor of Health Science degree at Sydney University where I majored in Movement Sciences. I’ve also had experience in assisting numerous schools, representative clubs & NSW state football teams.

Outside of physio I’m probably playing football, watching Sydney FC or out with my mates!

B App Sc (Physio)

ASCA Level 1

Since graduating from the University of Sydney, I have specialised in treating and preventing musculoskeletal injuries (including injuries caused by overuse and acute trauma). I understand the debilitating impact that an injury can have on a person’s quality of life and career and the importance of not only relieving pain and accelerating recovery, but also of empowering my clients to develop the techniques and habits that will fortify their long-term health.

I have had extensive experience in private and public physiotherapy sectors, having worked at Prince of Wales and Young hospitals before joining Central Physio. In addition to my work at Central Physio, I have been employed as the physiotherapist for the NSW state women’s hockey team (the Arrows) for the past four years and for the Sydney University men’s hockey premier league team.

I have completed my Australian Strength and Conditioning Level 1 certificate. I was involved in establishing Central Physio’s women’s strength and conditioning program (HERO) and regularly conduct small group and private strength sessions for all skill and fitness levels.

  • Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD)
  • Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Hons) – University of Newcastle

As a dietitian my motivation comes from helping clients develop healthy eating habits that have a positive long-term health impact, whilst finding enjoyment from food without the need for strict diets. I provide my clients with a complete dietary analysis, individualised advice, nutrition education, & empower them to make autonomous food choices that will assist them to reach their goals.

I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients including those looking to use nutrition to improve all-round health, people who need to adjust their diet around issues such as weight control & cardiovascular health, & also those at all levels of sporting competition.

I have a huge interest in sports nutrition & I am currently the assistant dietitian at the NSW Waratahs. In this role I deliver individual consultations, group education sessions, cooking classes & skinfold assessments. I love helping individuals reach their sporting goals through optimising their nutritional intake & recovery protocols.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, eating out, and trying different sports – current sports of choice are AFL and Rugby 7’s.
