Leading Aircraftman

Australian Defence Medal


I was born on Dharug land and grew up in Penrith for the majority of my life, however I’m a proud Yorta Yorta man on my Grandfathers side. I am the second youngest out of my five siblings, the third to graduate year 12 and the first of my generation to join the ADF. In 2018, feeling adrift I made the bold decision and enlisted in the Australian Defence Force as an Aviation firefighter and was posted to No. 22SQN at RAAF Base Richmond, fulfilling a sense of purpose while serving my country.
