How did you discover Bridge? When did you first start playing?
After teaching solo to a number of friends in 1991, I was asked if I could fill in at Bridge, my friend handed me Jim Borin’s book and said you’ll be fine. We played once a month at my place as I had a newborn. After a couple of years I thought there was probably more to this game and so went to Improver lessons at Borin’s. It was Jim who was my mentor; he asked me if I would work for him supervising the beginners. I guess that was the beginning of my love affair with Bridge
Why did you decide to become a Bridge Teacher?
Yvonne Millman invited me to teach at a community bridge club in Sandringham. I enjoyed watching the beginners “light up” as they got it. Many of those I taught in the early years still play at Bayside
What do you enjoy most about playing/teaching Bridge?
I enjoy playing with a partner I’m in tune with is one of the most rewarding bridge experiences. As is watching new players grow; their enjoyment evident as their knowledge and prowess develop.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
Ah! That would be telling.
I did have a brief introduction to bridge when aged 18 I went on a cruise with a girlfriend. Even though we won the bridge competition (it was a very small field!) and were encouraged to join a club, we both decided boys would be more fun.
