My professional background is in commercial law, where I have over twenty years experience as both a solicitor and as a barrister, and in running my own legal practice. My clients have included corporate clients in the mining, insolvency, resources, and property management industries, small business, as well as environment and conservation organisations.

I have an aptitude for analysis and computation, including the ability to program in several computing languages, and to use software tools and database applications to extract, analyse and present data. I have also used my design and project management skills to develop software and web pages.

I aim to use my business advisory, and analytical skills to ensure longer-term social, environmental and economic factors are taken into proper consideration in government and private activities.
