About Me (ACCT11081)

Hi everyone

I enjoy living in the small coastal town of Yeppoon in Central Queensland – on the coast about 600km north of Brisbane and near Rockhampton.

I can be found walking on the beach early in the morning with my wife Margie, swimming in our lap pool or chilling out on our deck enjoying the beautiful coastal views. And visiting the truly amazing islands just a few kilometres off the coast as well as nearby Rockhampton.

I have a PhD in Accounting Education and a Graduate Diploma in Higher Education. I am committed to supporting university students to experience real, active learning in their studies as we learn with and from each other.

I have extensive and senior level experience in business – in investment banking, funds management and private equity – as well as about 15 years experience as an academic.

I grew up in Sydney. And also spent about 15 years living and working in New Zealand; with its breathtaking natural beauty.

I enjoy the opportunity of supporting people in first year accounting to discover that accounting is not scary, or boring, or difficult … but is exciting as we find we can use accounting to help open up the world of business to us; to help us connect with what is really going on in our firms.

And I enjoy teaching our first-year introductory financial accounting unit, ACCT11081 Introductory Financial Accounting, as we lay a technical foundation for our study (and practice) of accounting.
