I was born in Adalaide and moved to Perth at the age of two and spent time in City Beach before moving to Cottsloe and going to Scotch College.
My sporting interest at that time was footy, squash and sailing with the later taking all my time up including traveling interstate for nationals and even wordls championships.
I was involved in the Americas cup in 1987 with Kookaburra and in 1996 moved to Brunei to work for the Royal Family as a captain on there smallest yacht.
I married in 1997 and my daughter was born in 1999 before moving back to Perth in the middle of 2000.
I am currently the Manager of a boating company and the owners rep for Riviera located in East Fremantle
