He spent his early career at Woodbine, Canada, his family having emigrated there in the 1990s. He also gained experience with leading overseas trainers John Hawkes, in Australia, and both Shaun Ritchie and Lance Noble in New Zealand. So made a bright start to his training career and notched 39 wins in his debut season (2013/14). So trained the 2015/16 season's Most Improved Horse, Fabulous One, who then gave him another milestone in 2016/17 when he became the handler's first runner abroad. He had his best season to date in 2016/17 with 56 wins, placing him fourth in the trainers' championship.
