He has trained numerous scientists in the art of commercial scientific problem-solving. He is a father of 4 and a grandfather soon to be of 4. (His family are undecided whether he is a pain in the arse all the time or only part of the time). He is a past NSW State President and served for 4 years on the Federal Executive of Soils Australia. He is proud to say he is the founder of Environmental Earth Sciences International and a soil scientist (except to customs officers as he is sick and tired in having his boots checked). After over 35 years as a practising soil scientist and entrepreneur, he remains passionate about landscape repair.
