After leaving school I completed a TAFE prevocational course in Carpentry & Cabinet making.

I worked for 3 months for McMasters Builders in high-rise construction carpentry.

Job Tasks:- hanging fire doors and levelling floors.

Seeking a higher level of craftsmanship, I secured a furniture-making job, making solid timber furniture & kitchens. I progressed through the company to production manager. The owner of the furniture company was also a builder. During my employment with the company, we completed various building projects including residential, Kitchen & bathroom renovations, office fit-outs and a factory.

Job Tasks:- All aspects of solid timber furniture-making & wood machining, set-out, construction and installation of kitchens & custom furniture. Cutting lists, material ordering, programming workflow, safety, staff training, production design, furniture design and prototype design. Carpentry:- framing, cladding, windows, internal linings & fix out.

After 8 years with the company I felt that it was time for something new as I had progressed as far as I could within the organisation.

I travelled to Europe for 18 months mostly working in the entertainment industry as a Set Carpenter & Lighting Technician, building sets and preparing lighting systems for touring bands & theatre shows. During my time away I worked for 3 months on a coach inn restoration project installing oak beams, flooring, bathroom fit-outs & joinery.

On my return to Australia I took a job as Carpenter for Futuretec Australia, working on various themed projects.

Job Tasks:- Manufacture & installation of structural elements, partition walls, suspended ceilings, manufacture & installation of EPS facades to theme parks, restaurants, shops, gaming rooms. Site manager for large commercial installation projects.

My next job saw me doing much the same but progressed through the company first to production manager, then sales & estimating and finally general manager. This company also completed several renovation projects, which saw me coordinating trades.

Job Tasks:- Design, manufacture & installation of architectural mouldings & themed facades Australia Wide. Production design & management, CAD design, Sales, Estimating, Safety, Project Management, HR, Advertising, Accounts & Logistics.

Since 2005 I have been self employed, subcontracting in differing roles, to various companies.
