As well as being a keen cyclist, I have a strong interest in Not-For-Profit volunteering. I have served on numerous boards since 2009 including various mountain biking government steering committees and advisory groups.

As a Chartered Management Accountant, Graduate of the Institute of Company Directors and with an MBA from Curtin Graduate Business School (where I was top graduating student), I bring over 25 years of finance, governance and management/leadership experience to the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation board.

My volunteering with the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation began in 2011 with trail maintenance before becoming Area Leader between Perth and Dwellingup. I have also acted as a ride guide, most notably leading the 2014 end-to-end Epic ride, then coordinating the 2015 edition. I joined the board in 2013 and have served as Treasurer, Ordinary Board Member and Vice Chair.

I started cutting my own trails in the bush around Perth at 13, and got the mountain bike racing mountain bug well over twenty years ago. I've completed 25+ international mountain bike stage races and know what the pointy end of the field looks like, on a good day!

My passion for all things two wheeled ranges from singlespeeds to fat bikes, lightweight race machines to cyclocross alongside experience in design, prototyping and testing of bikes and apparel. You can usually find me exploring the Perth Hills and surrounds whilst planning my next adventure. I spend an inordinate amount of time procrastinating about great bike rides to be completed and more importantly, what bike to buy for each one.

Having spent a decade as a field engineer from the Arctic to the Middle East, I returned to Western Australia a few years ago. My management skills and hands-on experience give me insight into both the strategic and operational sides of project delivery. I've ridden the Munda Biddi since it's inception and am passionate about upgrading sections of the Trail and linking the Munda Biddi through to other areas of the state as more trails are developed.

As Treasurer of the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation my focus is on managing finances, risk and governance and ensuring we deliver on our strategic goals for the benefit of our stakeholders.

Our Trail is already a great resource for riders. We have an opportunity to develop and promote the Munda Biddi Trail towards local and international recognition providing eco adventure tourists an amazing experience, while supporting Western Australian community and business along the route. I have ridden many sections of the trail and the full end to end ride is on my bucket list (definitely north to south!).

I am a Chartered Accountant and graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. As an owner of an accounting practice, Porters CA, our offices in Perth and Albany deal with clients along the length of the trail.

Following a professional career of over 35 years in the global resource sector as a geologist and resource lawyer, I am now retired and spend my time cycling both on-road and off-road. My favourite are multi-day rides on off-road tracks. I have ridden various sections of the Munda Biddi Trail over the years, completed a N-S E2E ride, and am looking forward to doing a S-N E2E in the near future. Recently, I rode the Tasmanian Trail and cycled from Kununurra to Broome via the King River Rd, Karunji Track and Gibb River Road.


The Munda Biddi Trail is a world class, off-road, biking trail attracting riders from across Australia and around the globe. I am keen to work with the board and executive on continuing to improve on the trail experience for riders and the local community, and to increase the profile of the Foundation both domestically and internationally.


I hold a PhD (Geology) and LLB (Hons) from the University of Western Australia. I am currently a director of the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (MRIWA), an independent statutory authority of the government of Western Australia established for the purposes of fostering and promoting minerals research for the benefit of the State. Previous board roles include: director AMPLA national board, member of the advisory board of the UWA Geoscience Foundation, and other roles in the resources sector.
