I have been playing hockey since I was 6 years old and grew up around the hockey fields of South Africa as my mother was a player and coach.  I made my debut for Proteas, South Africa in 2001 against the USA and have led the team as Captain since 2006.  I grew up in Durban, South Africa and love the East Coast, however for the last 7 years Johannesburg has become home for me.
