I've been a member of RCWE since July 2002 - just missed being an inaugural!
I enjoy Rotary for both the friendship of my fellow members and the interesting meetings we have as well as knowing I'm part of an organisation doing real good in the community - locally, in Australia and around the world.
Outside of Rotary I am a chartered accountant, now working as an independent director and consultant to a number of companies as well as an occasional property developer. I was previously managing partner of a major Perth accountancy practice.
I have two adult children and am now on the Grandparents train with my granddaughter just turning 2. I also enjoy my partner Cathy's 3 children and with her no.2 daughter just announcing her engagement we've got more fun family times ahead.
For rest and recreation I scuba dive and am a member of the lycra-wearing road bike community. My main interest there is the Ride for Youth - an annual 700km bike ride supporting Youth Focus, an outstanding organisation providing support to young people at risk of mental illness, self-harm and suicide.
