I am senior associate with Minter Ellison seconded full time to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) as its Legal Manager for Venue Development and Overlay. The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) is a $2billion project that will see the Gold Coast host the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade.   I am one of five lawyers based at GamesHQ, as part of the team responsible for all legal services necessary to enable delivery of GC2018.

Throughout 2016 I was the lead construction lawyer, responsible for managing all of the legal work relating to GOLDOC’s temporary construction and overlay program. This included drafting and negotiating agreements for some of GOLDOC’s highest risk and highest value procurement activities.  For instance, there is a good chance the chair you sit in at GC2018, is one of 60,000 temporary seats I was an integral part of procuring for 13 competition venues to accommodate approximately 1.5 million spectators. My work is what gives our venues the look and feel of major event stadia.  

In November 2016 I was appointed to the board of Triathlon Queensland(TQ) as an independent director. TQ is the organisation responsible for fostering the growth and development of Triathlon in Queensland. In FY15-16 TQ had 6178 members or about 28% of Australian triathlon members.

I also volunteer at the Bond University Law pro bono Clinic, am a keen cyclist and mentor one of the two rotating Griffith University interns undertaking work experience in the legal team.
