“Being born and bred in Western Sydney, the opportunity to assist in the development and growth of Western Sydney Airport was simply too appealing to resist.


I aim to promote a great working environment at Western Sydney Airport based on passion, success and friendly working relationships. I hope that my 28 years industry experience will allow me to add significant value to the business.”
