Eastern Suburbs and surrounds
I'm a born and bred Shire boy: born at Sutherland Hospital and brought up at Grays Point.
After finishing school, I moved to Engadine and started my first job as an apprentice at a lithographic company. I progressed up the company and ended up owning and running it for many years.
I came to BC Sands in 2016, starting on the front counter where I quickly mastered our products and services, combining that with my management skills to become the Sales Team Manager in September 2016. I moved to manage the Mascot branch until it merged with Taren Point, and also managed our new Brookvale branch for a few months. Now I am on the road as a Project Consultant, looking after established customers and finding new ones. I love the variety of the job. Every day is different, and I also enjoy being out in the elements rather than at a desk in an office. I love being on site and meeting people: I'm perfectly happy to be wading through mud to meet a customer face-to-face. And I enjoy the challenges; I'm always ready to think on my feet to come up with a solution.
Outside work, I have three kids, including one who also works at BC Sands. On the weekends, I'm heavily involved with their sports, training and managing various teams. And I love to go camping with friends.
Rest of Sydney, plus Sutherland Shire and St. George
I was born at Sutherland Hospital, but brought up in Carlton, where I went to Carlton South Infants & Primary School and Blakehurst High School.
After high school I took a gap year and worked as a fruit picker and for Hurstville Builders Hardware at Hurstville, before moving to Lismore where I studied at Southern Cross University, graduating with a degree in Health Science.
While at university, I worked part time for BBC Hardware and helped them transition to a Bunnings store. I worked in hospitals and nursing homes, but disliked the hours and bad conditions and so picked up a job at Bexley Hardware, the first business owned by Mark Parsons, owner of BC Sands. I became a manager at Bexley Hardware and managed that branch until Mark closed it down to set up BC Sands in Taren Point. That's when I started as an external sales rep and I have been doing it ever since--I've now been at BC Sands for over 20 years.
Since moving back to Sydney I've lived at Carlton, Coogee (several places) and now South Hurstville.
My all-time favourite thing to do when not at work is snow skiing, even after a recent bad knee injury. I also love riding dirt bikes, adventure bike touring, road and mountain bike cycling, kayaking, hiking, camping and a good drop of red wine. I am currently learning to ice skate and roller blade with my young son, Harry, with a view to playing ice hockey so I can continue my regular donations to our fabulous health care system.
