To date, he has played 58 games for the Monarch-Saints, 92 games for the Saints, 2 games for Russell Athletic, 31 games for the Marauders and 60 games for the Braves for a career total of 243 senior outings. He played for the Melbourne Nite Owls for some years and in 2009 played in the Rematch of the Century for the centenary of ice hockey in Australia. He rejoined the Braves for the new B-Grade in the Victorian league in 2017.
He is a chartered accountant at McCorquodale Group in Mentone which he established in 2004. Sadly his wife Sarah died in 2012, but he is the father of three young daughters, Abbey, Hannah and Kate.
