Born in New Zealand I was raised on a dairy farm in the North Island before attending University in Hamilton. I was awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Scholarship by Ceramco New Zealand – who then became my first employer.

I love business, I love seeing people doing well in business and succeeding through their efforts and skills. Finding the right people for our clients and then developing them is an honour and privilege I do not take for granted.

I live in Palm Beach, Sydney and love the ocean and outdoors. Sports are a big part of my life – both participating and following. My other passion is cooking.

My life philosophy is "never complain, never explain – just embrace the experience".
