Professional Summary

My industry focus has led me to work with a variety of clients in the Hotels & Student Accommodation sector, providing a variety of valuation, advisory and feasibility services. This has exposed me to a suite of unique and exciting 'going concern' properties and projects Australia wide.  

I have been fortunate enough to work across a broad variety of accommodation  assets including boarding houses (traditional and new generation), motels, hotels, resorts, purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA), co-living, car parks and major tourist attractions. 

Learning experiences in the past have included investor management, facilities management, property management and dealing with high-maintenance and  distressed properties.

Keen to assist where I can to help unlock opportunities for owners, operators and parties interested in the accommodation sector.
