15 Yrs Experience
Melbourne, VIC 3004

I’ve been at Rising Tide since 2007, it was my first job. A serious ride this far - I’m now the managing director.

We work with individuals & couples who are likely to be tackling any or all of the following in the next few years - buying & selling property, looking to invest, families, school fees, travel & wanting to keep an eye on their retirement goals.

Goals-based advice, mortgages, super, life insurance & investing are our wheelhouses.

Day to day I run the business - but I also get to spend lots of my week belly-to-belly with clients - to help them achieve the important things in their life through good financial management.

Early days I completed a Bachelor of Commerce at Deakin Uni, but since then I’ve completed more specific financial planning-related study. Textbook learning is important, but learning from human interaction is the part of my job is what I love the most. Recently I completed the Australian Institute of Directors course inDirectorship.

Away from work, Annie and I live in Melbourne not far from our Docklands office - we are also very lucky to have had our amazing little kids Max & Rosie.

Family is a big part of my life, but I love sport, particularly footy, and am fortunate to have a close connection with the Carlton football club.
