I'm an out and proudly gay, full-time Civil Celebrant, occasional kayak fisherman, vegie gardener, foodie and keyboard player. I'm happily partnered to husband-to-be, Clint and I'm also a regular newsreader on JOY 94.9, Australia's only LGBTI radio station.

 

Each Thursday night, Clint and I devote two hours of our time to work with a small group of other volunteers to feed and clothe up to 100 homeless people in Melbourne’s CBD. I donate $20 to this group from each wedding I conduct.

Not only am I the proud father of four terrific sons and 7 fabulous grandchildren but Clint and I are also parents to our beloved kelpie, Bingo, aged two.

Over the years, I'd been to lots of weddings and commitment ceremonies and I often came away from them thinking they could have been done a lot better. Several years ago, it was a casual conversation with Suzanne, one of my best friends, that changed my life when she suggested I become a Celebrant. By the end of that day, I had enrolled in the Celebrancy course.

As a former senior executive in state and local government for the last two decades (most recently as Assistant Director Data Analytics with the Victorian Ombudsman), I have written way too many briefs and speeches for premiers, ministers and heads of departments. But doing so has helped me pick up a few skills and has given me a deep understanding of how major events and important ceremonies are structured and presented.

It's been a natural step for me to put that knowledge and those skills into practice as a Celebrant. I'm driven by drafting and delivering high quality, personalised, bespoke ceremonies.

I don't do boring (unless I am asked to); nor do I do cookie-cutter ceremonies!

As a former English and Drama teacher, I know how to work with people to put together ceremonies that are authentic, interesting, polished, enjoyable and memorable.

And I know how to deliver them appropriately, tailored to the audience. I'm a friendly and engaging guy, genuinely interested in people.

I want to find out and tell couples' love stories, as they're often what contribute the most to making a ceremony different from any other.

It also helps that I'm a highly organised professional, when it comes to putting things in order and taking care of the legal paperwork. I love the fact that people invite me into their lives and entrust me to develop with them - and then deliver - one of the most important milestones in their entire lives.

I get the best seat in the house and I never take that for granted.
