How long have you lived in or around Forbes and what do you like about living here? I grew up on my family’s property at Murga and I had visited Forbes frequently before moving here at the start of this year.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy most about your work? I work at JR Richards in Parkes and I enjoy every day being an adventure, being non-routine and getting to spend it in a truck and meeting other people.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I work 6 days a week, so my day off on Sunday is usually spent catching up on sleep, spending time with my girlfriend and the dogs. I also enjoy fishing and being outdoors.
What are you really good at? I enjoy fixing things and getting things running again as I’m pretty mechanically minded.
What is your pet hate? Tomatoes and bad drivers.
If you could have a super power what would it be and why? Time travel so I can get through the few long days at work.
Tell us about your best holiday ever? When I was young, I went to Tangalooma in Queensland and fed wild dolphins. I’m going on holidays next month so I hope it will be memorable as it’s my first holiday in years.
What makes your day? Coming home to a killer dinner from the missus, especially her spag bol and cold beer.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I can do 3 out of 4 skills a country bloke shouldn’t own up to because he’s more than likely to get stuck doing it, which is: shear a sheep, milk a cow and put up a fence. I’m still to learn how to shoe a horse.
