NT Public Service Experienced Regional Director
I have a Bachelor of Commerce and extensive experience in leading an organisation through strategic and operational direction.

Highly Experienced Lawyer
Prior to commencing to practise as a Native Title Lawyer some 20 or more years ago, I was a commercial and property lawyer and worked extensively with small to medium sized businesses over some 20 or more years. My native title practice has developed over the past 20 years. As a result, I have now practiced exclusively as a native title lawyer over the past 15 years. During that time, I have developed an intimate knowledge of the native title, cultural heritage, CATSI Act and the Indigenous space more generally. As a result, I have developed a deep understanding of the challenges that face indigenous people in Australia both within their own communities and within the wider Australian community. Throughout that time, I have only ever worked for Indigenous claimant groups, native title holders and directors of both CATSI Act corporations and Corporations Act companies. Aside from my legal background, I bring an ability to effectively communicate with and develop lasting relationships with Indigenous People. The skills developed as a commercial/native title lawyer enable me to provide practical easily understood advice so as to enable indigenous people to understand the complex legislative and legal environment within which they must work. My own personal experience as a small business owner and operator also means that I have a deep personal understanding of the difficulty in surviving, growing and successfully operating a profitable business.
