How long have you lived in or around Canowindra?
We bought our property on Belubula Way in 2001 but only moved to live here full-time about 4 years ago.
What made you move to Canowindra?
We came to this area on our first visit to Australia in 1993 for a farm stay holiday at Millamolong Homestead with our two young daughters. We loved our time there and kept returning year after year – eventually buying a small acreage nearby and then migrating to Australia.
Where do you work?
I had a long career in finance, initially as an institutional stockbroker in Asia, and then as an investment manager in Sydney. I now have a number of volunteer roles with various community organisations and projects.
What do you love most about volunteering?
I really enjoy the “not-for-profit” and community elements of the projects I’m involved with. A refreshing change from the finance industry!
How do you start your day? Cuppa tea, feed the horses, let the chooks out, walk the dogs…then back inside for a coffee and a relaxing breakfast with my wife.
What makes your day? Sundowners under the big yellowbox tree at the end of the garden with my wife Josephine, seeing friends and our daughters, when they visit us.
