Profile

I bring over 20 years’ experience to my practice in family law.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Melbourne in 1990, I was admitted to practice in 1992.  I signed the Roll of Counsel in 2001.

Prior to being called to the Bar I practiced as a solicitor in Geelong for 9 years.  During that time I served on the board of Crime Victim Services and volunteered at the Geelong Community Legal Service.  I served as President of the Geelong Law Association in 2001.

Outside of work, I enjoy (in no particular order of preference or proficiency) surfing, cycling, home brewing, skiing, scuba diving, golf, travel, camping, swimming and bushwalking; and in recent times I have started to develop an interest in ornithology, much to my wife’s bemusement.

In response to mid-life crisis I have also taken up the bass guitar.

My favourite film is Planet of the Apes and I barrack for Richmond (Go Tigers!).
