I was and raised in Donald in the northwest of Victoria on a rural wheat farm. After finishing high school, I moved to Melbourne to complete my university studies. After 15 years in Melbourne, my wife Kate and I decided on a tree change and moved to Baranduda in 2005. We love the rural setting at Baranduda after moving from Melbourne. We actually know all our neighbours in the street we live in which was not the case in Melbourne. We love the landscape and views that the Albury Wodonga region provide as well as enjoying the many restaurants and winery's the area has to offer.
I began my Accounting career in Melbourne at a CPA Firm where I worked for 15 years. In 2005 I joined ATS Partners as a Senior Accountant and later became Director in 2014. Upon the merger of ATS Partners & STM, I joined STM as an Associate Director in 2021.
STM provides a relaxed, friendly and flexible workplace. There is a strong team environment with all staff willing to assist and support other team members whenever required.
My role involves looking after my client's business interests by providing advice in all areas of their business from cash flow reporting, budgeting, tax planning, financial reporting, equipment financing, software support, benchmarking, succession planning and business appraisal. I really enjoy how my job involves dealing with a diverse range of clients that are in different industries with different needs and requirements so each day is interesting and enjoyable.
In my spare time I enjoy social tennis every week at Baranduda, taking the dog out for ride with me on the mountain bike every morning, taking the trail motor bike out on weekends to ride up in the hills, catching up with family and friends and cooking them up an amazing meal and enjoy going away on holidays with my wife Kate each year.
