After growing up in far Western Queensland where indoor plumbing was non existent, it is quite ironic that I now own and operate a company which prides itself in providing the most quality bathware and tiles imported from brands based all over the world.
I began my career with Elite Bathware & Tiles whilst studying for my Landscape Architecture degree over 20 years ago. I love the atmosphere and camaraderie that we have in the workplace and have stayed on even after completing my studies. My role is quite varied as it involves sales, purchasing, logistics and administrative duties. We have a wonderful team environment which enables me to offer support, expertise and guidance whenever required. We hope to offer a wonderful result for our customers that both they and we can all be proud of.
I love hanging out with my mates in my spare time playing golf and generally having a good time. I love the social aspect of golf and play as often as possible. We often travel together overseas to pursue greener fairways and cultural experiences. In particular, I love visiting Cambodia and Vietnam as they have wonderful golf courses and a culture that I can immerse myself in. I am always looking forward to the next adventure.
As a young child I loved playing 'house' and loved to help paint and decorate our family home. As I grew older this same love applied to my own homes and this love and passion for anything to do with houses saw me turn my bank on the finance world and led me to study design.
I have been a showroom consultant with Elite for over 6 years and working in the bathware and tile industry for over 12 years.
I am here to listen to your needs and offer you personally selected solutions and products that we source from around the world. I will look after you from beginning to end of your job - no job is too small or too large.
When I'm not at work you will find me at the beach (or basically anywhere near the water), redecorating my home or tracking down a good coffee shop.
I've always believed in the saying "Write your life plan in pencil not pen" - My working life has snaked through university, sales, banking and finance, business owner and now into tiles, tapware and toilets!
My position takes me to some fantastic places and enables me to meet some pretty amazing individuals and teams. I am in awe of how these talented people turn an idea and vision into reality. They take a picture in their head, put it on paper and watch it grow through development and construction, finally for us to live in it and enjoy it. They are then brave enough to put their name to these designs and put it out there for the world to judge.
Coming from an automotive background I decided to have a career change and began working at Elite in 2017. This introduced me to tiles, Bathware and sanitary ware - very different industry and a big learning curve.
Handling all the logistics for the imported products and managing the warehouse keeps me busy and I enjoy the challenge of despatching the orders Australia wide in a great condition and on time.
When not at work I enjoy restoring VW's and spending time with my wife and friends.
I have been working with Elite for a few years now, helping out wherever help is needed. I have bounced around between the warehouse and the office, getting the best of both worlds with hands on work as well as creative/design work.
My passion is in music and events, so when I'm not working I'll be playing music or working for festivals/events around Brisbane.
