For 6 years from the ages of 13-19 he competed at a national level in Olympic weightlifting training out of NorthSport Olympic Weightlifting, a foundation club within AUT Millennium.

He became passionate about working in swimming and since June 2020, has been working with North Shore Swimming and their Polar Beer Youth Squad as their Strength and Conditioning Coach, with swimmers ranging between 15-18 years old.
