I was raised on a remote farm in South Australia. Growing up in the country was awesome. I have a loving family who were always supportive and caring. Rural life could at times be isolating and tough as a gay man. These challenges made me resilient and helped as I moved to the city to study then begin my career.
I have been fortunate to travel extensively throughout Australia. Either for work or leisure. Meeting wonderful people and forming many great friendships. I have travelled the world experiencing many different cultures and seeing wonderful countries. This helped me be a better person.
I have worked for many corporations and owned and operated my own business. I have gained much knowledge and experience throughout my career. I have made many wonderful professional relationships along the way.
In 2018 I became a speaker for Beyond Blue because as a small business owner I struggled with anxiety. I learnt ways to manage this and wanted to share my stories of hope. In corporate life I initially lived a double life and this caused stress and anxiety. Being brave enough to come out, I wanted to help others struggling in similar situations.
I met the love of my life in Perth. After 30 years together we were finally able the marry in 2018 after the Marriage Act changed in Australia.
