  • Constructed a detailed costing analysis to test the viability of a skills development model in an emerging state precinct
  • Supported clients to identify and capitalise on eligible research and development work which may qualify for tax incentives.

He has also tutored and mentored regional and disadvantaged students in the Upper Hunter region of New South Wales.

In his spare time...
