Outside of being a lawyer

My passion is the Arts. I am most passionate about the operas of Richard Wagner, travelling all over the world, most recently to New York, to witness these marvels. I am regularly sighted at the Melbourne Theatre Company, Bell Shakespeare Company, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra, the latter of which my firm supports pro bono. In my time off I am often reading the novels of Anthony Trollope. The other counterbalancing passion is the Essendon Football Club and I am sighted every week supporting the boys.
