Meet our Team
Born in the Sunshine State but raised in Canberra, I was happy to move to the Sunshine Coast in 1999 and finish my degree in Business at the Sunshine Coast University. After completing my CPA qualification I founded Asset Accounting from home in Currimundi before moving into our current premises in Dicky Beach.
I have been told that I have a knack for explaining accounting and tax issues in a way that the layman can understand; I think that it is just that I take the time to make sure people do understand exactly what is going on. I have a passion for business structuring and Self Managed Super Funds and get the most job satisfaction when a client is reaching their goals in the most efficient way.
Away from work, I like to spend time with my family at the beach or camping. I also sing and play guitar and follow the Canberra Raiders in the NRL.
I am a CPA qualified accountant with over 20 year experience in providing accounting, management and taxation advice to small and business. I starting my career in one of the big four firms, Coopers and Lybrand as a specialist advisor in there taxation division. These were the days of corporate libraries – there was no internet – and I spent countless hours with my head in "big books" researching case law. At the same time I was also planning an adventure with a rock band called the Aadvarks. Having tasted the success of winning the Queensland Rock Awards I felt sure we were on track to becoming the next INXS. So having spent 4 years with Coopers I moved to Sydney to pursue my rock star ambitions. Sadly I admit the move to Sydney did not launch me to fame and fortune but I did get to tour up and down the east coast with some of great Aussie bands of their time. I returned to Brisbane and commenced work with a smaller city based chartered accounting firm, Steinhardt and Company. To my surprise I found I really enjoyed working within a smaller firm environment and gained invaluable experience in managing the accounting and taxation needs of a wide variety of clients. In particular I enjoyed the one to one client contact. Becoming an integral part of a clients business, I gained job satisfaction from contributing to business growth and success. After having spent 11 years with Steinhardt and Company my wife and I moved to the Sunshine Coast. We had decided the time was right to start a family and thought the coast lifestyle provide the perfect environment to raise a young family.
I have been working in the accounting industry since 2006 and have experienced all the practical facets of accounting, business and taxation. Outside of my professional life I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, music, movies and my two cats Snickers and Skittles.
I moved to the Sunshine coast 10 years ago from Canberra. I enjoy surfing, scuba diving, kite surfing and just hanging out at the skate ramp. I have 2 daughters who keep me busy and a husband who drives me insane. I'm the happy voice you will hear on the phone when you call Asset Accounting and I also look after all the ASIC corporate affairs.
