I've been blessed to have several interesting careers and travelled around Australia and the world. After long and successful stints in management and business development with federal government agencies and large businesses both private and public, I left all that behind in 2010 to pursue my own enterprises and have been a small business owner/operator for the last decade.

Mathematics and physics were my university subjects of choice. These years of study honed the problem solving and analytical skills I've used all through my working life. My work experience encompasses national and international business development, promotion and site location services, blue chip client relationship management, large scale customer service operations, business modelling, corporate financial planning and management. From there I branched into performance coaching and mentoring, technical development and services in the fields of aerodynamics, performance coaching, applied physiology, athletic performance models and software and of course, website design.

Outside of work I love the sport of cycling and was once a competitive racing cyclist on both the track and road. Following a training accident in 2007, which resulted in a lower leg amputation, I returned to competitive cycling and performed just as well as I ever had, setting state and national records in able-bodied competition as well as winning medals at national and international para-cycling competitions.

In early-2016 my partner Kath and I chose to leave behind the development monster known as Sydney and begin a gentler life in Bellingen.
