I spent 7 years of my working life serving in the defence force, first as an Infantry soldier and later on as an Intelligence Analyst. During this time I learned the value of hard work and a good information system. This big picture thinking enabled me to understand how systems and tactics can affect operations. As part of my transition into civilian life, I decided to expand my horizons and commenced my Bachelor of Commerce Degree (majoring in Entrepreneurship and Innovation). I also have the following qualifications:
• Diploma in Quality Auditing
• Cert IV in Frontline Management
• Cert IV in Government
• Cert IV in Government (Security)
• Cert IV in WHS
• Cert IV in Security & Risk Management
Lisa (my wife) and I purchased the Gloria Jeans Coffees franchise in Darwin city as a business practice run. Having left the Army, and continuing my studies, it was a great fit for us. We excelled straight away because of our meticulous planning and attention to detail. Every aspect of the business is considered and our customers recognise this. My passion for adventure lives on… every day as a business owner is an adventure. I love the ideals behind making each and every part of our business the best it can be. Innovation and creativity is a passion of mine and I am excited to share this with you.
