*What inspired your decision to join the real estate industry and what excites you about your career?
I’ve always had a strong interest in property and the different types of building styles and land available to real estate investors throughout Australia.
North Queensland specifically has a great diversity of real estate, from traditional Queenslanders, rainforest pole homes, modern contemporary housing design and much more. This diversity also provides excellent job diversity. In addition, real estate provides me with the opportunity to constantly be working a dealing with people from all over; therefore the professional and social element of real estate is perfect for a satisfying and rewarding job vocation.
*What is a brief summary of your working history?
Throughout the past 20 years I have had extensive experience in both the media and real estate industries. I have worked with both News Corporation and Southern Cross Austereo at a regional and national level working on marketing strategy for a broad range of businesses. More specifically in real estate I have gained many years’ experience in the industry as part of the First national real estate group and also with Simonds Homes, one of Australia’s leading home builders.
*Where did you grow up and why do you now choose to live in Cairns?
I grew up in Cohuna, a small but vibrant town in regional Victoria on the Murray River and as a result was raised very much outdoors, in the bush and in a sporting environment.
I left my home town to attend Latrobe University after High school to study Business and first came to Cairns in 2002. In 2005 I left to spend 2 years living overseas in Europe. In 2011 I returned to Cairns to satisfy my passion for the tropical lifestyle, the great barrier reef, rainforest, and great network of friends.
*What are your hobbies and interests?
Fishing, Golf, Scuba, Rainforest Hiking, all water based activities and real estate.
