Profile

I was raised, on our property “Tarwin Meadows”, situated in South Gippsland, as was my own Family. In the past 20 years, I have become passionate about our environment, the welfare of our animals and the product that we generate. My background in farming has enabled me to develop what I consider to be a high quality paddock to plate product, something I felt that was previously lacking to the general public.
My ultimate aim in purchasing Ashburton Meats 7 years ago was to provide all customers with an excellent standard of service and the best eating experience on offer.

I started my career as a butcher as a clean up kid after school. I ended up becoming a casual cashier over the weekends which in turn got me my apprenticeship offer and I haven’t looked back since. I am a passionate Richmond Tigers supporter as well as a passionate car enthusiast. I like to spend my weekends at the drag racing track. I am grateful to be working with such a talented group of people and look forward to furthering my knowledge of the industry!
