Business Manager, JBD (Jewellery By Design)
AKA: B Man
I’m renowned for: My love of my wonderful family, passion for the jewellery industry, supporting local businesses, charities and coffee.
My most memorable holiday was… a family trip to Melbourne a couple of years ago when we got to catch up with relatives we had never met before. Also enjoying the culture and dining experiences of that great city.
Right now I wish I was… holidaying back in Melbourne with my wife and two boys.
My favourite day is: Sunday as I get to spend time with my family.
The biggest influence in my life is: My wife Sandra and two boys. They are very loving, supportive, inspiring and help guide me with business and life decisions. I would not be where I am today without them. Also Jamie McGeachie, he is an inspirational person and entrepreneur.
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was… trying to retrieve my mate’s golf ball and falling into the pond. This is a story that he will delight in telling for the rest of his life.
Someone famous I met was: I have been lucky to meet various people through my involvement with local sporting and business groups. I’ve met: Pat Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, John Newcombe, Tony Roche, John Alexander, Ken Rosewell, Kieran Perkins, Jesinta Campbell, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Jeff Kennett, Tim Fischer and John Calleija.
My motto is: Live life to the fullest!
