The Inaugural Long Legal Blog

It has been an interesting journey to get to the point of writing this, my first blog.  Whilst Long Legal is only a few months old, it has taken 25 years to get here.

This started with studying Urban & Regional Planning at UNE in Armidale commencing in 1989 as a 17 year old.  I went on to work as a Town Planner in the private and public sector doing Strategic and Development Assessment work.  I also had the privilege of appearing as an expert witness in the Land & Environment Court.

Then came Law at Macquarie University in Sydney and a stint as Corporate Lawyer for one of the largest councils in the state as well as being Principal at Law & Planning.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with some exceptional professionals who became great mentors.  I have also made many lifelong friendships.  There are so many people to thank for being here that if I list names, I am sure to miss several.  So instead, thank you to everyone for helping me make this happen.

Blog on!
