After starting my tertiary studies in Economics, I was extremely fortunate to change programs and move into Optometry at QUT. After 9 years of professional practice I can safely say I have never looked back and am looking forward to many more years in our profession.
I have worked most of my career within Specsavers after joining one of the first groups to go through their graduate program in 2010. Early in my career I realised that I enjoyed the business of optometry as much as the clinical care which lead me to become a Director of Specsavers Australia Fair, a position I successfully held for 5 years before selling the business in April 2018. Since then I have worked as a locum in over 20 different practices around Queensland. This has been a wonderful experience and has started to show me some of the great diversity in people, practice models and clinical output that our profession has to offer.
During my career I have served on the OQNT board as an Observer, Director and Treasurer which is the position I now hold. Additionally, I have been a member and chair of numerous internal committees within the organisation. I enjoy giving back to the profession, helping to address some of our problems but most importantly I enjoy helping optometry and optometrists further develop and continue to grow.
Personally, I am recently married and live in East Brisbane with my wife and our dog. I love travelling and I try to visit a new place every year. I am also a member of a longstanding social mixed netball team – The Gumbies which still hosts original members from our graduating class of 2010.
