A former hospital pharmacist,I now devote myself full time as a professional researcher/biographer/author, specializing in, but not limited to, the collecting of local history in the Moreton Bay area. This I disseminate into the community through my self published books, lectures to local community groups, and since 1997, by maintaining an Internet webpage now on this site
As well as my Moreton Bay researches, I have more recently received commissions to write other works such as the history of Brisbane’s Mater Hospital Pharmacy, Queensland’s German Connections (co author), the history of the Port of Brisbane.
In 2013/14 I was a consultant and co-author of a book for the Museum of Brisbane’s exhibition entitled “The Many Lives of Moreton Bay“.
My 2015 writing project was a commission from the Cleveland Library entitled “World War 1 Heroes of the Redlands“.
Most recently, I have completed a history of the family behind the firm of George Symons Suits, the well known suit maker in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne last century.
