A Father of three, I was a stay at home parent for 17 years 365 24/7 while my partner often worked away or interstate.
Within my own family circles. I have first hand experience with Children on the Autistic spectrum and Down Syndrome.
I was the initiator in setting up Victoria’s first fathers’ support group and have been involved in Autism support groups in several states.
I am a keen gardener and avid recycler. I try to run as often as I can (5km a day is my goal).
I am a practising Artist who paints in acrylic on canvas. Old trams, cars, boats and buildings are my recurring themes in my work as is the local coast around where I live. I exhibit my work on a regular basis, both locally and in Melbourne.
