I was born and raised in Bedourie on a cattle property with three brothers. I attended boarding school in Brisbane from Grade 4 and once completed, I went and worked on property before making Mount Isa home in 1984.
I completed an apprenticeship at Bell and Moir Toyota as a Motor Mechanic before starting at Mount Isa Mines in 1988. Once leaving the mines I worked for a local contractor before purchasing Cava Hydraulics in 2003. Since then I have successfully worked with Mount Isa Mines, surrounding mines and local businesses.
My wife Natasha and I have 4 beautiful daughters - Danni, Jaymee, Bree and Ashtyn - who we have raised here in Mount Isa and believe that this truly is a great city to call home and raise a family.
As well as having played Rugby League for Town Rugby League Club and representative for Mount Isa, I am a life member of Town Rugby League and am the current President of the Mount Isa Race Club.
I have served on many local community boards throughout my time in Mount Isa, notably Town Leagues Club, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School P&F Association, MICCOE, and MIGATE, to name a few, and consider myself to be not only a passionate Mount Isan, but also one not afraid to get involved and work hard for a good cause.
I have been fortunate enough to be able to support local clubs and charities throughout my business life and feel extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve.
The next four-year term will be extremely difficult and important for the viability and liveability of our community. I feel that water and recycling are two objectives I would like to see highlighted and achieved.
I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to serve on Council for another term and the community can rest assured that I will have the best interests of the complete community at heart.
