About Me

Welcome to what is perhaps the most awkward section of one’s website, wherein one talks of one’s self in a covert attempt to convince you of one’s character and worth (whilst pretending not to).

 

I’m a hotelier turned organisational development executive with a passion for building high performance, customer-obsessed cultures and great places to work. I lead large-scale, cross-functional change & transformation programs and projects to create high performance cultures that place people at their heart.

I often speak at conferences and the like on such topics.

Speaking of speaking, I’ve also spent some time training as a Radio Presenter & Producer and volunteering on community radio. I’ve produced and presented a weekly sports radio show and anchored a number of outside broadcasts and live radio events, interviewing Olympic Gold Medalists, CEOs, Media Personalities & Politicians. Keep an ear out for a new podcast project in the making!

My weekend passion is Rugby Union. I’ve been involved in the game for as long as I can remember as a long-suffering Wallabies supporter and as a player, coach, referee and administrator. Back in 2009, I founded the Melbourne Chargers, Victoria’s first and only truly inclusive rugby club with the primary aim of creating a prejudice free rugby environment for members of the GLBTI community. Along the way to achieving this goal, the club has broken down barriers and challenged stereotypes, not just on the rugby field , but in the wider sporting community and beyond. 

A couple of years ago, I began a quest to rid myself of life's excess and live a simpler and more intentional life. As it turns out, simple is not easy, but it is a path I continue along on in the hope to make room for what is more important: experiences, relationships, growth and contribution.
