My Story:

I am married to Sarah and we have 3 Children – Rachel, Jessica and Joshua. We are Australian’s who moved to Japan to work with TEAM in March 2004. In Australia I worked as a lawyer for 11 years, most of that time with Legal Aid, specializing in legal issues for people with a disability and legal issues for older people. My family and I have recently moved back to Australia, where I serve as TEAM’s Executive Director for the Asia Pacific Region.
