David was born in Wangaratta but raised in Cape Patterson from the age of 2 onwards.

David's hobbies include playing the guitar, reading, gaming and cricket. Emma's include singing, playing guitar and being a full time mom to their children Timothy and Elijah.


David and Emma are excited to be in their their first parish and beginning fulltime ministry. They look forward to taking part in God's plan for the parish and the ways in which they can engage and preach the Gospel in both the Church and the wider community.
