Outside of being a lawyer
There are a myriad of activities that I engage in outside of the law. From a philanthropic perspective I am the co-founder and director of the charity: Australian Books for Children of Africa. Musically speaking, I play piano, sing and am a member of a choral group.
When the opportunity presents, I love attending live theatre and music. Exercise wise I train twice per week with a superb personal trainer and love going for long extended walks with family and friends. One of my delights is catching up with good friends and spending time with family.
