Well done! You're officially a Titan Poker Team member! How do you feel?

I feel extremely pleased to be part of this elite team. I am very excited about playing at great venues all over the world.

What is your educational background?

I graduated with a BSC in Applied Economics.

How long have you been playing poker for (both live and online) and how did you get started?

I was introduced to online poker by some friends about 6 years ago. Whilst at University I had some big wins online and started to take the game more seriously. My first major live tournament was the 2008 WSOP main event in which I finished 114th. This encouraged me to qualify for as many live tournaments as possible, including many of the European Poker Tour (EPT) events.

What is your biggest win so far (live or online)?

My biggest cash win so far was in the 2009 WSOP main event, in which I came 41st for just under $179,000.

What is your poker philosophy?

Mix up your game. Every player, table and situation will be different so it is important to be able to change your style when it is necessary. This will also help you become less predictable in the long run.

What is your life philosophy?

Mix up your game! Look for new experiences and challenge yourself.

How would you describe yourself?

I would say I am a laid back, calm person but also very competitive, which is why I always strive to be the best at everything I put my hand to.

What is your favorite music/movie?

I have loads of favourite movies, but my favourite actors are Matt Damon, Eddie Norton and Robert De Niro. So Rounders is obviously one of my all time favourites, also Good Will Hunting and Goodfellas. I like all sorts of music but at the moment I am into Kings of Leon and Kasabian.

Which poker player do you aspire to be most like and why?

Daniel Negreanu. Not only is he a great player but he always seems to enjoy himself both on and off the table.

Which tournament/country is first on your list as a new Titan Team member and why?

I really want to play the Aussie Millions again, as I love Australia and the tournament itself is at a fantastic location.

What do you plan to do with the prize money from each tournament (if you win)?

Of course this depends on the amount of money I win, some will be used to build my poker bankroll. But hopefully I can win enough so that my girlfriend and I can buy a nice big house! I have also donated money to charities of my choice in the past so hopefully I can continue to do this.

Any advice to other players hoping to be a part of the Titan Team?

Play as much as possible to get some experience under your belt, playing online is a great way to do this as you can play so many more hands per hour than in a live game. Also, there are so many helpful books and websites available now, so take the time to read up and develop your game, you will reap the benefits in the end.
