Why did you choose the Finance Industry?
Few industries offer as many diverse and dynamic opportunities as the Finance Industry. It attracts big personalities from all walks of life and every day is different and exciting.
What has been your career highlight?
I joined DJ Carmichael in 1999 and there have been a lot of highlights over the past two decades. Guiding my client’s though the dot-com bubble, September 11, the global financial crisis and the two subsequent market booms that followed were the most exciting. But I’ve also enjoyed the opportunity to write investment articles for the ASX, address investment focused audiences of greater than 400 people and develop investment strategies for a variety of clients ranging from fund managers and family offices to down to Earth non-professional mum-and-dad investors.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
The diversity. I particularly enjoy meeting and researching companies, working with clients to help them achieve their financial goals, and most of all investing in new technologies.
What is your favourite thing outside your job?
I am currently studying Kinesiology and enjoy using my skills to mentor and help others.
Give us an interesting fact about yourself?
I am an accomplished entertainer and traveller having written, promoted and performed my own stand-up comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, authored two books and visited over sixty countries. I can solve the Rubik’s Cube in less than 2 minutes, have driven a Formula One race car on the Spanish Grand Prix circuit and have won a handful of local short film festivals.
