“From 1997 to 2007 I worked in Manly Qild as a Marine Electrician. During 2007, as one of my large projects was close to completion I made the decision to take a chance and see what the mining boom had to offer me.
My story is one of travel, adventure and finding a new start in the Pilbara.”

“Newman has stunning countryside literally on its doorstep, Karijini is only two hours away and there are numerous water holes closer to town for a Sunday picnic with friends.
The Pilbara has a beauty unto its own, and being able to explore the area and share this with our children is important to us.”
