I was born in Singapore in 1976 (expat parents) returning to Australia four years later to grow up in Sydney's north shore.
Starting my real working life in 1994, after an extended working holiday through Europe & USA, as an underwriter at QBE Insurance then making the switch to insurance broking firstly with Jardine Lloyd Thompson then Marsh.
Taking a massive leap of faith in 2001 I decided to join Insurance Advisernet Australia to fulfil my ambition of running my own business as an Authorised Representative (owner operator) winning numerous income growth awards including the honour of winning AR of the year in 2007.
With my wife, Angelique, we have three children born 2005, 2007 & 2008 (yes hectic times early on) and in 2010 decided to sell out of Sydney for a seachange to Coffs Harbour where we now reside. I remain an AR of IAA and continue to manage my existing clientele whilst further growing my portfolio.
I like my sports thus play for a local soccer club, getting in a surf whenever possible. Our children are very active with soccer, nippers, gymnastics and other "stuff" keeping us in constant motion!!
Anqelique & myself enjoy nights out (babysitter permitting) preferring a good old pub with live bands and enjoy a relaxing end of day beer or red on the verandah at home (kids screaming in the back ground, ah serenity).
Life and work are great, and I aim to visit as much of the world with my family over time with the end goal being to work less but more importantly enjoy life, as we only have one crack at it.
