Born in Darwin, Northern Territory, Anderson is a fast and durable rebounding defender and occasional midfielder who captained the Northern Territory at Under-18 level and was best and fairest for Northern Territory Football League (NTFL) club Darwin.
Anderson was selected in the 2006 AFL National Draft by Carlton with their fifth round selection (67th overall pick) and made his AFL debut in Carlton's 2007 Round 4 clash against the West Coast Eagles at Subiaco. Throughout his AFL career, Anderson struggled to hold a regular position, playing twelve games overall, and spending most of his time developing with Carlton's VFL-affiliate, the Northern Bullants. Anderson was a member of the Bullants' losing 2009 grand final team, and played his 50th game for the VFL club in 2010. He was de-listed by Carlton at the end of the 2010 AFL season.
Anderson moved to South Australia after being delisted, where he played in the South Australian National Football League. He played for Sturt from 2011 until 2012, then moved to North Adelaide in 2013. He also played for his former junior team, Darwin, in the 2012/13 NTFL season.
