I’m The Motley Fool’s Chief Investment Officer in Australia. I am the Advisor of The Fool’s flagship investment service, Motley Fool Share Advisor and the Portfolio Manager of Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio and Motley Fool Everlasting Income. I’m also the Director of our most exclusive service, Motley Fool Platinum.

I’m passionate about investing, having managed my own portfolio for over 20 years. A dyed-in-the-wool Fool (in the best way), I have been a member of The Motley Fool since 1999.

I hold a Bachelor of Commerce (Management) and a Graduate Diploma of Accounting.

Before joining The Fool, I worked in various Sales and Finance roles in industry, which has allowed me to see the good, bad and the ugly of corporate management close-up. Giving me a great understanding of the way businesses run – and what separates the business wheat from the chaff – I wholeheartedly agree with Warren Buffett when he said he was a ‘better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor’.

I left a successful career to follow my passion – helping our members achieve the best possible investment returns, and helping Australians learn to better manage their money. It’s no surprise I ended up at The Motley Fool.

Disclosure and transparency are vital. You can see my holdings here.
