What was your most memorable moment from the 2016 Shamrocks Season?

What work out do you do in the offseason to get ready for the 2017 season?
TA: I lift weights and make sure to keep up on my cardio (stairs, treadmill, sprints, bike).

What are you doing in the WLA offseason?
TA: Working full-time for a non-profit organization called the John Howard Society of Victoria.

We heard you volunteer in the community with kids, can you talk more about that?
TA: Through my work, one of the programs I work with is called the KidStart Mentoring Program. The program is centred around volunteer work with at-risk youth, We pair volunteers with youth and help promote positive activity. One of my jobs with this program is to reach out to community organizations and ask for their help to support our volunteers by donating discounted/free passes to their venues. The program is a great way to get the community aware and willing to help in any way possible. The idea is to help the volunteer and youth just have fun. Aside from the program, I mentor and do fun activities with a little guy once a week.
