My original qualifications were in commerce and taxation law, gaining a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) with a sub-major in Law at the University of New South Wales. These qualifications have been expanded with formal studies in governance, strategy, facilitation, leadership, negotiation, training, communication and consciousness.

I am an alumnus of Social Leadership Australia (formerly the Sydney Leadership Program) and was Dux of Marist Brothers College Pagewood (1987). My primary schooling was at Lady of the Annunciation (Pagewood) and Marist Brothers Daceyville.
