I like to read over my notes and listen to some music - It helps me make sure that I am prepared but relaxed at the same time.

Notes from the field

I am a defender for the New Zealand hockey team and I first debuted for the Black Sticks at the Oceania cup in Stratford, 2013. I currently have 125 caps for New Zealand with my most recent highlight being this years Rio Olympic Games. I have played at the Somerville Hockey Club since I first started hockey and play for Auckland in the National Hockey League as well. Outside of hockey I love getting out and exploring all the amazing places that New Zealand has to offer, and spending time with friends and family is pretty important too. If I didn't play hockey I would love to be travelling but I think I would have to finish my University Degree first!
