"I did Veterinary Science at Syd Uni and graduated in 68. Joined the NSW Department of
Agriculture as a veterinary officer but resigned in 1971 to work in the UK. After pulling out
dead calves,treating ferrets and obese cats and dogs as well the occasional road kill and other
assorted Herriot like vet work returned to Sydney and became a public servant again. Stayed
with Agriculture in various veterinary positions until 1991 when
resigned.because of the relocation of Head Office to Orange.
Went back to practice for a while
- greyhound vet at Wentworth Park! and joined a biotechnology company for 4 years. Left in
97 and since been consultant vet to the Royal North Shore Hospital animal house as well as
doing drug registration consultancies. Also have several veterinary products on the market.

Hobbies- I enjoy sailing with my boat handily moored at Longueville. Looking forward to seeing
