I have lived and worked in the Hunter region for almost 40 years.
After completing my Law degree at Macquarie University I was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW in 1981.
Since 1985 I have been a senior partner in a local law firm, based in Maitland.
I have extensive experience in criminal and family law, and am widely respected within the industry by colleagues and clients.
I am a committee member of the Hunter Valley Law Society. I am heavily involved in my local community.
I have been President of the Rutherford-Telarah Rotary Club, President of Lochinvar Rovers soccer club, Vice-President of Maitland Golf Club, and am still an active member of Maitland Netball Association.
I am currently a member of Newcastle Golf Club, and a passionate Jets supporter.
I have also worked with students at All Saints College in the Mock Trial program and the Gifted and Talented programs.
I have competed in the last three world masters games in both soccer and golf.
I have been married since 1989 and have three adult children.
