I joined my home Club of Lara in 2007-2008 to serve those less fortunate in my community. This resulted in an awareness of the bigger picture and my focus is now directed towards service the wider community of the Lions District as your District Governor.

At Club level I have served as President, 1st & 2nd Vice President on numerous occasions, and as catering coordinator.

My wife Shirley and I have been happily married for 47 years, and we have three grown children.

As a dedicated family man, I spend a lot of time supporting the children in all of their activities, and lately following the next generation and supporting all of the grandchildren in their endeavours.

My involvement at District Level for the past ten years includes, Zone Chairperson, Region Chairperson, Clubs Excellence Process Coordinator and Facilitator Training, Retention Chairperson, Zone Chairperson Coordinator, GMT/GLT presenting at Club Development Days, member of the Long-Range Planning Group and 2nd & 1st Vice District Governor.

I have successfully completed the Advanced Lions Leadership Institute, the Faculty Development Institute and Certified Guiding Lion Certificate.
