Regularly working in the following suburbs:
- Brinkin – Nakara

- Rapid Creek
Why did you decide to join Jim’s Pest Control?
I really wanted to go out on my own and have a go at starting my own business. Having the backing of the recognised Jim’s brand and the support it provides was a big plus to me. Pest control appealed to me because not only is it an in demand service in Darwin, but it is also one of the Jim’s group fastest growing divisions.
What are your values?
My values are good customer relations, while providing an affordable, reliable service that people will not only use again, but recommend to others.
Tell us about your Family ?
I live in Darwin with my wife, two daughters and son. We have been located here for nearly 6 years, love the territory lifestyle and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love spending time with my family, camping, fishing and just enjoying the outdoor lifestyle that comes with living in the Northern Territory.
What advice can you give to customers?
Our tropical climate in Darwin provides a perfect breeding environment for many different pests. I strongly recommend people stay on top of their annual termite inspections, and seek our advice at the first sign of any general pest issues.
What has been one of your most interesting jobs?
I think my first possum trapping was a surprise. It wasn’t something that I had really considered to be part of the pest control industry.
How had your franchise been for you since joining:
I have really enjoyed the freedom of setting my own hours, being flexible to my families timetable and giving myself great work/life balance.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time:
In 5 years I would like to see myself running a successful and reliable Jim’s franchise, being renowned for great customer relations, and providing outstanding pest control services.
Common pest issues that you find come across in your local area.
Darwin has the most damaging Termites in all of Australia. We also provide the perfect breeding environment for many types of general household pests.
