The World's Strongest Astronomer

Yes I was one of those dudes that lift, pull, roll, drag and carry heavy things :-)

Runner up in Australias Strongest Man competition 1997
1st place Tasmanian strength challenge 1998
2nd place Australia v New Zealand International Strength Challenge 3 times!! 98, 99 and 2004
Captain of the Australian Strongman Team 1999 & 2000
New World Record in the popular Farmers Walk strongman event 2001
Champion of the Stones at Bundanoon is Brigadoon 2002

Throughout my career as a competitive strongman I got to travel a bit and enjoyed appearences on a few TV shows, on a number of radio stations and in lots of Newspapers and I even appeared on the side of a cereal packet - it was great fun! I retired from major competition at the end of 2004...now the Universe is calling.....
