Grew up in Melbourne, son of a cobbler and a nurse.
Did a B App Sc Chem at Melb Uni, so I'm a bucket chemist.
Moved to Perth in 1989 to pursue a career in mining with ACM.
Married a West Aussie, Ariane Treleaven in 1993.
We went back to Melb for 10 years with MPI Mines.
Had our first boy, Oscar in 2001, then Banjo in 2004 and Finnegan in 2006. Came back to Perth in 2002 to run Sally Malay Mining/Panoramic Resources (a nickel miner) and was CEO until Nov 2019.
Had 6 months off and then joined Poseidon Nickel in March this year.
Also on the board of Ocean Grown Abalone, just for something different.
Joined the Youth Focus board in 2008 and was Chairman for 5 years until 2017 and promised myself I would do the Ride, so here I am!
Have done a bit of mountain bike riding but not a lot of road riding so I hope Trenchie and the rest of the riders can get me up to speed by March. Keen to continue to assist Youth Focus so they can keep providing their much needed services to our young people.
