About Me

I'm endlessly curious and interested in local and global issues, acquiring knowledge and applying my mind to a range of challenges and opportunities. I have a portfolio of professional roles that takes me across multiple industry sectors with myriad responsibilities. The shape of my work suits me perfectly. Consulting, board work and governance, education, career management, head-hunting, e-commerce and now also procurement.

I've been in the consulting area for nearly 20 years. In addition to the privilege of being the MD of a mid-size consulting firm and a small consulting practice I've held numerous Boards appointments over the past 15 years.

In addition, I have an abiding passion for story telling through screenwriting and film, I'm a keen fun runner, love cooking on the weekends, and more recently am enjoying strategizing the e-commercialisation of a small Australian wine business.
