After finishing his pre-registration year at the Royal Brisbane Hospital he spent 6 years working both as a locum pharmacist and as a managing pharmacist, and a lot of time traveling. He had experience of a multitude of dispensary layouts and procedures that limited access for patients to easily speak with pharmacists about their health and medications, and limited the ability for pharmacists to spend a lot of time with patients. From 1990 he practiced forward dispensing in Noosa Heads, and this confirmed for him that this mode of pharmacy was the ultimate professionally and personally satisfying lifestyle. He spent 4 years working with Clint Coker in the Hastings St Pharmacy, Noosa Heads.
