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.

Have two great sons aged 18 and 15 Ben and Carlin.

Hobbies- I enjoy sailing with my boat handily moored at Longueville.
