Growing up, Joel was thrusted into sport at an early age. Being one of the oldest of ten children, his parents thought it necessary that everyone played a team sport and did year-round extra-curricular activities to stay occupied.


Joel’s family moved to Australia when he was 12 years old, where sport was his earliest comfort. At the age of 16, he completed a school-based traineeship in Sport and Recreation. This allowed Joel to learn about sports development and administration, in particular with rugby league.


He went on to play footy professionally, but eventually retired on the Gold Coast. It was then that Joel pursued a career in training and assessment, which enables him to inspire, uplift and educate the next batch of rising young talent.


Joel is passionate about health, fitness and sport, and he loves instilling in others the skills, courage and confidence to go out and be successful. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Get in touch with Joel today, and let him guide you in the right direction for a successful career in the sport and recreation sector.
