My career began with 10 years in the RAN where I served on surface ships and submarines as an electrician. I then went to CQU and became an electrical engineer and spent seven years working for Eastman Kodak. After breaking my leg in a motorcycle accident, I returned to CQU and got a degree in learning management. I taught Woodwork, Metalwork, Math, Science and Religious Studies for several years in Queensland. I moved to WA 3 years ago to be with my wife. I am currently working at Bunnings while I setup my tutoring business.
