Age: 48
Team: Postage Stamp Farms
Handicap: 5
Home Country: Australia
How many years playing the sport: Since I was 16.
Pre-game ritual: I hit the facilities!
You travel around the world for polo. Which destination has been your favorite? I love playing in Argentina.
Favorite part of playing polo: The horses.
Favorite local hang-out when playing at Greenwich Polo Club: Meli Melo but I also want to check out The National this season because I’ve been to the one in New York and they have great food.
Favorite thing to do when not on the field: I am a die-hard New York Mets fan and I attend games or listen to them on the radio whenever I can (often with Mariano). Being a Mets fan automatically means I have to trash talk the Yankees!
Favorite song: My current favorite is “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots, but I can’t help myself – I love listening to “Winner Takes it All” by Abba after a game.
If I weren’t a polo player I would be: Batman! But if that wasn’t an option I would still have a career where I could work with horses.
Favorite all-time horse and why? La Jazz – she was beautiful and amazing on the field.
