I have trained with and continue training with the prestigious “The Coaching Institute”. I understand the stresses of raising a family, and the difficulty in balancing career choices with life stresses. I am happily married, and we have 3 sons. My greatest success is that with enormous passion and effort my wife and I have raised a child with special needs to be a highly functioning adult who works and travels overseas.
I have been in the position of feeling “stuck”, and needing to stay where I am. Not being able to chase the opportunities in life because you have “responsibilities”. I now know that you can have the life you want and can help you to achieve it.
I strongly believe in community and enjoy helping others. I am a Justice of the Peace and have been a commentator in the annual Campbelltown Fishers Ghost Street Parade for over 20 years. I have run or participated in many public speaking courses for adults and school children over many years through Toastmasters, as well as offering one on one public speaking training.
I enjoy mentoring and coaching in the Macarthur Area and also in our neighbouring areas of Illawarra, Southern Highlands and greater Sydney. Coaching sessions can be done face to face, via Zoom ( or other online methods) or telephone.
I am a member of the following organisations:
- International Coaching Guild
- Toastmasters International
- Over 20 years of membership
- Various roles on Executive Committee of different clubs
- Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and Industry
- Greater Cumberland Chamber of Commerce
- Former member of Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce

As well as my coaching, mentoring and speaking as a Life Success Coach I also write articles for Smarter Macarthur business magazine.
