DAD TO THREE UNDER THREE
Official Stay-At-Home Dad
I am currently the Chief Entertainment Officer (CEO) of a boy who is only 20 months older than his younger sister; while she is only 2 minutes older than her younger brother. On top of being outnumbered and overpowered in every circumstance imaginable, I haven't slept in three years!

COLLEGE LEAD INSTRUCTOR
Centre for Arts and Technology
George Bernard Shaw once rudely wrote, "He who can, does; he who cannot, teaches". Well, thank goodness those "who can" had teachers who could teach them to do what they're doing now. This opportunity found me and it's been the best, most rewarding experience of my life. I think my students even like me too!
2010 - PRESENT
My biggest passion: KeyNote Productions is a company I formed to produce concerts, tours and live events. In addition to having produced more than 500 events, we have gone on to add Marketing, Ticketing and Venue Management divisions to the company. In everything that we do, we live for the live experience.
1999 - PRESENT
There has never been a question of whether or not I'm a natural entrepreneur. It's in my blood. I love seeking out gaps in the market and then strategise how to fill them. From restaurants to production companies, I'd much sooner apply my vision, skills and expertise to my own brands, rather than help someone else get rich. I've never worked so hard in my life... but then again, is it really work when you love what you're doing?
1995 - 2010
My first job at the age of 13 was peeling potatoes for a banquet of 4,000 people. I spent the next 15 years climbing the culinary ladder, working with world-class Chefs and eventually becoming one myself. The majority of the life lessons I've learned have come from the kitchen - and I've got the callouses to prove it.
