His committed leadership and passion for education has seen him represent his peers as a Liaison principal for Western Australian Primary Principals' Association (WAPPA), Network Principal for the Bibbulmun Network and on various committees supporting educational progress.
His leadership style is innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial, continually seeking opportunities and partnerships that enhance the development of appropriate teaching - learning relationships, reflective of student needs in today’s rapidly changing world.
His personal commitment to lifelong learning brings currency to school improvement in terms of pedagogy, curriculum and technology. This is enhanced by his participation in local, state and national education bodies, review groups and councils.
He brings this wealth of experience to his school community and led Falls Road to become an Independent Public School in 2011.
