Personal Background

I am a Territorian who studied law in Darwin and Canberra. After a time working as a lobbyist in Canberra I was admitted as a legal practitioner in the Northern Territory in 2002 and have worked as a Darwin lawyer, in-house-counsel in Government roles and most recently as CEO of the Law Society Northern Territory. I have turned my passion for the law and governance to create a boutique service bringing together my legal expertise and management experience.
