About Us

Our Team



Managing Director

Master of Financial Planning, Fellow Chartered Financial Practitioner.

Tom started in the financial planning industry in 2008, driven by a passion for understanding human behaviour around money and a long-held dream of business ownership. His desire to merge these interests led him to start Qualia Wealth (formerly MLC Advice, Nundah) in 2013. He’s since dedicated himself to making a real difference in people’s lives and watching them grow in financial confidence. 

Tom’s journey didn’t have a typical start. In 2002, he won the Australian Junior Golf Championship and shone in three Junior World Golf Championships, consistently securing top-10 positions. It was conversations while on the golf course that made Tom realise the difference financial advice can make to people’s lives. He was intrigued by the emotions and behaviours around money decisions, ultimately leading him towards becoming a Financial Adviser.

Today, Tom is a respected voice in the industry, known for his integrity, empathy, and ability to make complex financial concepts easy to understand. When he’s not at Qualia Wealth helping clients plan their ideal future, you can find Tom on golf courses and the great outdoors with his family, often admiring the grass!

What sets Tom apart is not just his skill in simplifying finance or his real, what-you-see-is-what-you-get personality matched with an unwavering work ethic. Tom believes in tackling challenges head-on and quickly, preventing them from escalating and ensuring that every client’s experience with Qualia Wealth is as smooth and beneficial as possible.

He channels this passion and determination into crafting bespoke financial strategies that hit the mark for our clients every time.
