Why did you choose waterpolo?
Over the years I came in contact with many coaches, officials and team mates, with each and every one of them leaving their mark, however the people who influenced me most were my family. My parents were a constant presence, particularly my brother Karl, who was my team mate throughout practically all my career. My family was certainly the main reason why I took up waterpolo from when I was young and used to visit my aunt’s summer residence in Birzebbugia. From then onwards I haven’t looked back. The game gave me yet another impetus and purpose and was very helpful since the time that I had developed Diabetes in 2006.

National Team or Junior National Team Participation and if possible when? Junior National team championships in Lisbon 2004 and Malta 2005

What does Exiles mean to you?
Exiles is a family oriented club which is run in a similar way as Birzebbugia, my previous club; it reminds me of the time when I had started palying waterpolo. After my experience at Birzebbugia, I had wanted to experience this new club, especially since my brother Karl had joined Exiles on loan for one season. When the opportunity presented itself to me, and I was approached by Exiles, it did not take me much time to make up my mind! I have been with the club ever since.
