How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like about living here?
28 years – so that nearly makes me a local. Having lived in large cities I love the sense of community in Forbes, the fact you can walk safely at night, you know your neighbours and can stop whilst out and have a chat with friends.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy most about your work?
I am the office secretary for the Anglican Church and a casual teacher’s aide at Forbes High School. I love working with people and having a positive impact on their lives.
What do you do to unwind after work and on weekends?
Chillaxing with my wife and youngest son. I’m president of Valley FM and a radio show presenter so I unwind by listening to 80’s music and organising the songs and themes for my Wednesday night show.
What are you really good at?
I’m pretty good at trivia, especially music trivia. Doesn’t serve any actual purpose in life.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
It would be to take away people’s pain. I hate seeing people in physical and emotional pain.
What is your pet hate?
It would be mobile phone etiquette. I hate people carrying on a phone conversation on loud speaker in a room of people.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
It would be a trip in 2007 to New Zealand with my wife and three kids. We hired a campervan and travelled around the South and North Islands.
