About Our Guest

I’m a country boy, born and raised. In my early years, my brothers and I helped out on the family farm (mostly in feeding the sheep, but also in climbing the header). In high school, I had a really passionate teacher in physics, so I decided to study it at uni (Curtin University). After a bit of a false start with the high level of mathematics required, I switched over to Chemistry where I eventually got my undergraduate and honours.

These days I work as the Analytical Chemist at the Albemarle Lithium Refinery just north of Bunbury, where we are processing the raw material into battery-grade lithium to be used in electric car batteries!

In my spare time, I’m a part of a sporting committee in Perth (Lambs Floorball Club) where I both play and live-stream our games, a part of the Northam Agricultural Society committee and on the Next Generation WA sub-committee, both of which are related to the Agricultural Show movement. After all that I also do a bit of astrophotography and have filmed a handful of weddings for some friends.
