Webster attended Westlake Boys High School in Auckland, New Zealand. In 2007, he moved to the United States to attend college at Lambuth University, where he played basketball for the Eagles in the 2007–08 season.
In 2008, Webster returned to New Zealand and signed with the New Zealand Breakers as a development player for the 2008–09 NBL season. Following the conclusion of the ANBL season, he joined the Harbour Heat for the 2009 New Zealand NBL season. In June 2009, he re-signed with the Breakers as a development player for the 2009–10 NBL season. Following the conclusion of the ANBL season, he re-joined the Harbour Heat for the 2010 New Zealand NBL season.
In 2010, Webster signed a two-year deal with the Breakers, joining the Breakers for the first time as a full-time roster player. Following the conclusion of the ANBL season, he joined the Wellington Saints for the 2011 New Zealand NBL season. In November 2011, he was released from the second year of his two-year contract by the Breakers due to a drug violation which forced him to sit out the 2011–12 season.
On 4 March 2014, Webster re-signed with the Saints for the 2014 New Zealand NBL season. On 4 July 2014, Webster was named the league MVP following the Saints win over the Nelson Giants to advance through to the Grand Final. The next day, the Saints won their eight title and Webster's second.
Webster is the son of Tony and Cherry Webster. Tony was a standout athlete in his own right, earning first team All-WAC honors at Hawaii in 1983 and ranking fourth on Hawaii’s career steals list before playing professionally in New Zealand. His younger brother, Tai, currently plays college basketball at the University of Nebraska.
