He studied both Cert III and Diploma in Horticulture and spent 13 years working in and managing several retail garden centres, and 4 years representing 2 major allied product suppliers to the horticultural industry. Having been using and selling their products since 2004 he was given the opportunity to represent Earthlife in 2016 and took the position with alacrity.
He is a fanatical plant collector and passionate gardener, with 6 acres of Land for Wildlife property in the rocky clay foothills of the Gold Coast Hinterland.
