Home

Welcome to my website. It’s a bit of a work in progress. Not unlike my whole life.

I’m here to provide my skills and services to responsible businesses – whether you are big or small, private, community-owned or public – to help you grow and prosper.

I specialise in problem-solving and sustainable solutions. Whether that is in over-coming a regulatory hurdle or you need a hand in navigating your way through the public policy landscape, I’m here for you.

Maybe you’re going through that period of growth and just need an extra pair of hands, fresh eyes and some creative input to get you to the next stage. I’m here for you.
