I’m a proud Papua New Guinean and I've been with my wife for 17 years of which we’ve been married for 13 years and we have 16 & 15 year old sons and a 5 year old daughter. I enjoy sports in general as well as getting out and about fishing and exploring the land. I grew up playing soccer as that was the only organised sports in Port Moresby, PNG for primary school kids. It wasn’t till when I went to high school in Brisbane, Australia that I got exposed to a whole raft of other sports that I enjoyed in my teenage years. Although volleyball, Australian football league, rugby union and off course soccer were sports I excelled in at high school, I wasn’t as talented as others and never made any representative teams. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering with merit from the PNG University of Technology and played competitive volleyball for a few years after leaving uni. Since being introduced to CrossFit in 2015 and being part of the CrossFit community, I’ve learnt to play squash and futsal and joined social competitions for both sports. Until now that I get represent my country at the CrossFit Games and unlike most CrossFit Athletes, Affiliate owners or trainers, I had nothing to show for in terms of representation at regional, state or national level either in PNG or Australia at anything. Knowing I’m not as talented, strong or naturally intellectual as most others, I’ve had to work hard and by God’s grace and mercy, I’ve been rewarded and blessed with what I’ve strived for. I’m thankful for my parents who taught me the principals of reaping and sowing and believing in nurturing relationships that are important in life. My wife and kids are the reason why I do what I do and am who I am. I think of myself as the ordinary person who after doing everything humanly possible has faith in God to do the rest, am able to reach the goals I set out to achieve. As my faith in the Holy Trinity and being part of my local church is to my spirit and soul, so is CrossFit and its community to my physical and mental wellness. Everything I am and do in life and as the owner of CrossFit Port Moresby, I do with Faith, Attitude, Integrity, Tenacity and Honour. I hope I can inspire those like me not only in PNG but around the world to be willing to step out in faith and pursue the dreams and plans God has placed in their hearts.
