My Bio Was born & bred in Adelaide South Australia, and my life was sport (baseball) and work (Robert Bryce & Co Ltd) after leaving school. Transferred to the Melbourne office in 1970 for 8 months, and then transferred to Sydney office in 1971. Married Wendy (she was from Newcastle) on 12th April that year and we settled in Dee Why. We purchased our first home (unit) at Dee Why, and then two years later bought land in the Penrith area and built our present home. We have currently one grand daughter.
In 1986 we purchased Max's Barn & Saddlery a retail Produce, Nursery, and Saddlery store and operated that for thirteen some years. It was a fun time as a family business, but age (carrying the heavy bags etc) and time for a change came in 1999.
In 2000 joined Jim Aitken & Partners in Real Estate, after 13 Years have now retired.
Enjoy photography, and plan is to release more Blurb books, and spend time with the family, and travel.
