My Qualifications

I am a long-time newcomer to the Sunshine Coast, having moved to Elphinstone in 1996. Like a lot of coast residents, I have a mix of employment and self employment, usually juggling three or four contracts and joblets. I’m also an enthusiastic volunteer, supporting as many worthwhile local organizations as I can.

Other Great Causes I Support

Really, I shouldn’t look so happy to be picking up skanky rubbish at the 2017 Trash Bash. It is unbelievable the amount of trash being dumped in the bush.
