Partnering with clients to provide peace of mind and help them fulfil their dreams is what I love most about being a financial planner.

Michael has worked in the finance industry for more than 20 years in a diverse range of management roles including IT, mortgage broking and financial planning. Prior to joining StatePlus in 2016, Michael ran his own financial planning and mortgage broking business.

Helping people and understanding what matters most to them is what excites Michael about the financial planning profession. A broad technical knowledge and experience in working with a range of diverse clients allows Michael to tailor solutions aimed at helping his clients achieve their financial goals and objectives. Michael is committed to delivering quality outcomes and making a difference in the lives of his clients.

Michael has a Bachelor of Science (majoring in Computer Science) and a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning and Finance Broking). He is married with 3 young children and is now in the final stages of completing a Masters of Applied Finance. Outside of work and studies, he is actively involved in the local community holding various committee positions for junior sports clubs including cricket and soccer. He enjoys keeping fit and playing cricket and baseball on the weekend. Born and bred in the Hunter Valley of NSW, he has progressively worked his way south through the Central Coast and Sydney before settling in Wollongong 4 years ago.
