What’s your story?
I grew up in the sleepy town of Redcliffe in a big, crazy, loud and loving family. My parents were involved in the local church and built our family values around working hard, showing grace and being generous. Whilst my dad worked incredibly hard in his own accounting practice, he always made time to pick my siblings and I up from school, take us to basketball, take us fishing and ensured he made time for family holidays. While his work was important, family was always number one.
How have you made a difference?
I truly believe NAB’s heartbeat is our customers. We’ve constantly pursued improvement and cast bold visions for the future. This is the same approach I bring to my customers by thinking outside the box to improve their banking and build their trust in me and in NAB. Working with NAB is not just a job but an opportunity to help people. I aim to be a banker that brings straight up honesty, integrity and genuine compassion to my customers and colleagues.
What are you passionate about?
I love life, giving back and helping others where I can. I am also new to the parenting gig with a three month old daughter. My wife and I love the new challenge, building our own family unit and surviving on little sleep!
