How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like about living here? I have lived on and off in Forbes for a little more than three years. It is a very welcoming community and is keen to support the public education of its young citizens. It is also an extremely generous community willing to chip in when the call goes out.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I am the Relieving Principal of Forbes High School but also a geography teacher. I enjoy creating opportunities for students to see what a big world they live in.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I like to spend time with my wife and our three kids. I listen to music, garden, watch movies with my kids, bush walk and cook!
What are you really good at? Listening, which is an essential skill in my position. I’m also a pretty good cook.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? The power to absorb every other super power and then utilise it!
What is your pet hate? Excuses… they serve no purpose!
Tell us about your best holiday ever. Hiking and motor-homing in the South Island of NZ with my family. Getting to fly around and land at the base of Mt Cook and climb over glaciers. Excellent food and beer too!
