Do something good each day,. After having spent a fair few years working overseas in Australia, I returned home for a time to be with family. Visiting and helping out there was a natural fit for me, and it’s been great…but it’s time for another adventure! I love helping others - human, flora and fauna - especially those that are unable to help or fend for themselves. To me, there is no greater self-satisfaction than lending a hand or helping to restore the balance of nature. This great work keeps one fit, and it fosters strong personal growth. I long for fulfilling my dreams, by making the doing of good my lifetime mission.

My past work: Security Escort (investigative role w. the Dep’t. of Defence, Australia); Private Investigator (surveillance); Security Ranger (Centennial Park, Sydney); and various short-term Security roles. My skills are: operating radio and surveillance equipment; undertaking foot, vehicle and static surveillance posts; data entry; report writing (incident and other); risk assessments and management; injured animal capture and release; habitat monitoring; protection and maintenance of flora and fauna. I’m big with both teamwork and independent work, as required.​
