Joined 1993 following involvement with baseball at the suggestion of then Trigg Secretary Joanne Bennett. Immediately saw that youth development was the key to Trigg’s future in success at State and Australian Championships. Led a vigorous Youth Development program ensuring that our youth attended Rotary camps, Leadership forums, SLSAWA Rise up camps, National Development camps and even assisted members on International Exchange programs. His method is to deal with a young person in all things in their life not just those related to surf lifesaving. This encompasses such things as home life, work aspirations, peer relationships and anything at all that will distract them from enjoying themselves at the club and fulfilling their obligations.
This strategy has played a major role in the club winning so many State Titles. Continues to work tirelessly as Aussie Teams Manager and is highly respected for his ability to relate to everyone he deals with.
Honoured with Life Membership in 2014.
