Courses and Events
G’day, my name’s Dean
I live on a hobby farm with my dog ‘Rojer’
On my farm there are extensive fruit & vegetable crops, a myriad of wildlife including wallabies, parrots, wood ducks & water dragons that occupy the properties river.
I grew up in the Hunter Valley working as an electricians apprentice to earn money to pursue my musical career (which i still dabble in today) In addition to working/performing I’ve taught over 30 students weekly, but i found myself not only teaching music but giving the students (of all ages) advice on their life issues & future endeavors.
Having gained my Cert IV & Diplomas I now feel I can be a mentor, an adviser & most of all a problem solver for those that might be in need of a little guidance.
