Celebrant background: From being trapped in the corporate world, I escaped into the country to embark on fresh challenges, wines (of course) and use of one of my best assets, my voice. I worked in Banking for 30 years giving each bank more than a pound of flesh for their benefit, but that was not the real me. I wanted to help people and give something to the community, so I joined the RFS, became an ugly sister and studied to become a Celebrant.
I am a toastmaster and soccer referee that gave me belief in my speaking ability and desire to help people. I am a people’s person, my mother was from a nursing profession and always thought I would become a Dr, but seeing someone hurt gave me as much pain as them!
I am twice married, have two sons, two step-sons and 4 grandsons. My eldest son has Autism, but lives a semi independent life, to which I feel proud.

I am a passionate person who gives 100 percent and believe in fairness (middle child syndrome) equity, diversity and inclusion are important to me

I have been fortunate to travel to many countries through both business and leisure (I am a pommie) and love seeing different cultures.

I am generally humorous and bubbly, but respectful and am to some extent a social chameleon, fitting in as necessary. Life is so much better now that I can “talk the talk” whilst the couple “walk the walk”
Why I'm a celebrant: My second marriage was solemnised by a celebrant and I loved the way we could design our own ceremony. The beautiful beaches, mountains, wineries, gardens, bush and sun are idyllic wedding settings and inspired me to become a celebrant.
I also wanted to use my strengths of communication to handle any form of ceremony happy or sad.
Toastmasters helped inspire impromptu and planned speeches, that are used in most occasions.
and I'd like to say: From first contact to completion, I am with you all the way. I am as flexible as can be, but ensuring legal requirements are adhered to. I am the man for all occasions and will give you my 100 percent
