Born in Melbourne, Australia, I studied accounting in College before the allure of a career in tennis led me to make a tough decision. Remain home and become a CPA, or travel the world playing tennis? Did I say, tough decision? I accepted a tennis scholarship to America and graduated with a degree in Economics & Finance in 1985. After graduation, and with the dream of a playing career cut short by injury, it was time for a new challenge. Thus, began a ten-year stint with a major U.S. airline traversing the country in numerous roles. More recently, before the writing bug took hold, I toiled for fifteen years as a bank executive in Dallas, Texas.

His covert digging into the bank’s files for confirmation promptly sets off alarm bells that reverberate around the globe and unwittingly lays bare a more in-depth, sinister plot.
