Qualified Plumber & Gas Fitter

For as long as I can remember I loved working with my hands. I was the kid who would hassle tradies and wear tool belts whenever there was work to be done. So of course, when it came time for me to choose a career, a trade was my first choice. I have been plumbing for over a decade, with the same drive as I had in my first year.

Work isn’t my only passion in life though. My wife and four children always keep me grounded (and very busy)! When I get the chance I’m in the gym training or planning a fishing trip for the kids.

Starting PIPERITE was a really natural process. I started this business with the goal of always staying true to my core values. Providing a professional service whilst delivering a great outcome for all projects, both big and small.

Qualified Plumber

I started my school based apprenticeship in 2008 working one day a week while

completing grade 12. Upon completion I became a qualified plumber and received my cert IV by the age of 21. I worked on commercial EBA jobs for 8 years.

I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in different aspects of plumbing since joining the team at Piperite, beginning of 2018.

In the near future I would like to acquire my gas license. I have 10 years experience in all areas of plumbing; commercial, civil, residential developments & maintenance. I take pride in my work and like to be neat.

Apprentice Plumber

Before Piperite, I was working at a chemist full time for 2 years. During the last few months I worked there, I knew I needed to do more than just pack shelves. I decided to do a more physically demanding job that I would enjoy.

I started plumbing in July 2017, and a month or two earlier I did work experience every Monday with Piperite to see if plumbing was right for me. After 2-3 days I really started to enjoy what I was doing and that’s when I knew I wanted to begin my career in plumbing.

While working with Piperite I have gained not only plumbing experience but life skills. From everyday problem solving to talking to clients. My goal is to become a licensed plumber.

Apprentice Plumber

My plumbing career started when I was 16. My Mum started her own business in 2010 working in the plumbing field, servicing waste water treatment plants. She became very successful and this inspired me to become a plumber.

As of 2019, I have now been plumbing for just over 5 years and have gained knowledge and experience in many aspects of the industry, including commercial EBA sites, maintenance, renovations, and servicing waste water treatment plants.

I thoroughly enjoy working with the team at Piperite as we share common standards and goals in our trade.
