I grew up on a horse and mixed cattle farm in Canyonleigh, NSW. As a Federal Circuit Judge, I sat on family law and bankruptcy cases.
I was one of the original members of the Farm Debt Mediation Panel in New South Wales, where I served for more than six years and mediated more than 50 farm debt matters before being appointed to the Bench in 2002.
I was appointment by the Minister of Environment to mediate a 76+ person community dispute in Gunnedah relating to the application of chemicals in agriculture and extending over 4 days. I was also appointment by the National Registration Authority to mediate an international dispute relating to the licencing of chemicals for use in manufacture in Australia.
