Grenfell Goannas junior who was recruited by the Panthers and was a part of the Jersey Flegg premiership winning team in 2006.

By 2008 he had graduated to the NRL squad, and made his NRL debut in Round 13 off the bench in their narrow loss to Cronulla at CUA Stdium, and made his starting debut on the wing the following week against the Roosters. However, he would suffer a shoulder injury and whilst he would return before the end of the season, was not able to break back into the NRL team, and played out the season in the NSW Cup.

He would remain apart of the lower grades system at Penrith over the next two seasons, with his final appearance being for the Windsor Wolves in the NSW Cup grand final in 2010.

In 2011, he moved to Gladstone in central Queensland and played in their local competition, before returning to Grenfell to play out his career for the Goannas in the Woodbridge Cup.
