Personal Information

I am married, have two grown up children and live with my wife in Perth, Western Australia.

My family background is of Italian decent. Growing up I was accustomed to all Italian traditions and lived in a small town called Waroona which is situated in the South West. I pride myself on being a committed and family-orientated person. A few years later, I moved with my family to Perth when I was only ten years old. This is where I spent most of my school years and was educated at Kelmscott primary, as well as, Armadale Senior High School.

Being a people person, I maintained a successful career in retail working as a store manager for big companies such as Wonderland of Toys, Myer, Target, Big W and Harris Scarfe.

I enjoyed my time as a manager and loved sales. This lead me to register as a real estate agent where I found my real passion of networking with people from all backgrounds and helping them find their dream homes. Within this role I realised that my true talent was my ability to manage connections with people in a professional manner and fulfil the requirements of my clients.

Through these connections, as well as friends and family, I had the honour of being the Master of Ceremonies for various functions, including weddings. With these experiences I found that I thrived within these social environments and was very comfortable with public speaking. However, the gratification of engaging and entertaining guests ultimately was the reason for my decision to pursue a career as a Marriage Celebrant in Perth.
