In 2011, at the age of 27, my highest break was 37, and I had never made more than 30 in the line-up.

It was at the start of 2011 that I decided I wanted to understand the game more and improve my snooker.

I played more, watched every YouTube video I could find, studied my technique, filmed myself... I even got the ironing board out at home and practiced my cueing while watching myself in a mirror!

Over the next 2 years my game really improved. I made my first century in a proper frame on 15th May 2013! (Yes, I know the date).

At this point I expected to just make many more centuries, but that didn't happen. I didn't make my next one until 8th October 2014. It was at this point I really felt like I needed to learn more about the game!

This is where my coaching comes in! 

As all my improvement has come as an adult, I really think I have something unique to offer as a coach. I understand the struggles I had when I was improving, and how I overcame these problems.


I have now made many century breaks in practice and in tournaments, and this is because I now really understand what works, and what doesn't. My highest break is now a 140 total clearance.

I consider myself a very friendly person that is easy to get along with. As I have a big passion for snooker, I really want to help other people achieve what I have in the game. I am proof that you do not need to start playing at 10 years old to be good! If you do the right things and understand certain principles, I really believe you can improve your game.

I recently completed my WPBSA 1st4Sport World Snooker Coaching Certification, so I am now a fully registered coach!

If you've ever wondered about coaching, I really do encourage you to try it. It is relaxed, fun and insightful! If you love snooker, you'll love coaching and improving your enjoyment of the game.

Thanks for reading!
