Born: (and raised) in Brisbane Qld, home of the mighty Maroons!
Lives: In Rushcutters Bay. I moved to Sydney in 1984 when I was a Regional General Manager in the TNT Transport Group initially residing in Caringbah. I moved to the Eastern Suburbs in 1992.
Snapshot of Daily Life: I am the Group General Manager of Show Group Enterprises, (www.showgroup.com.au) a specialist Logistics business providing dedicated Freight and Travel services to the Entertainment industry, Film & TV Productions, National Sporting Organizations and associated corporate entities. It is a challenging and lively but I am grateful to head a team of like-minded passionate people who enjoy their job.
Through the Entertainment industry I am Chairman of Trustees of the industry’s charity Trust The Golden Stave Foundation (www.goldenstave.com.au) that provides funds for children in need. I am also a Board Member of Nordoff Robbins, (www.nordoff-robbins.com.au) a Music Therapy organization that provides clinical services to children and young adults as a form of better communication skills to those who suffer from many forms of disability from hearing, sight, dyslexia, to name a few.
Part of Canice’s since: 1992 – after moving initially to Darling Point.
Where we will we find you in the Parish?: Everywhere from the Altar, the Sacristy, to the Kitchen where I have my own Sunday roster team. In my early days I was on both the Parish Council and Finance Committee.
I am also proud to be a current Board Member of JRS who are based with us at St Canice’s.
What keeps you coming to St Canice’s: In a “nutshell”…”Community”….It is the most engaging Parish I have ever been in albeit it is a small Parish with a big heart for social justice and social welfare. My first PP was the late Father Donal Taylor SJ. It is important to note that FOUR former priests based with us in our Community have gone on to become Provincials of the Australian Jesuit Province whilst other are now country managers in South Africa and Myanmar for JRS. In summary St Canice’s is all about “character building”
