He grew up on a beef farm in Kawarren and attended Sacred Heart School and Elliminyt Primary School prior to spending his secondary schooling years at Colac College. He was a 3rd year undergraduate student in Physical Education (Teaching) at the University of Ballarat at the time he was drafted. He has two siblings, a brother Ryan and a sister Breanna.
