How long have you lived in Parkes and why do you like living here? I was born in Parkes and have lived here all of my life. It is such a progressive town and we are lucky to have such a friendly community. The way local business and people from all walks of life support our annual show is a great example of what a great place Parkes is to call home.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I work on our family farming operation. I like the variety of tasks a mixed farm offers, being able to work outdoors, the interesting people you meet along the way and the other staff are pretty friendly too.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I don’t mind watching a good movie, going fishing and generally just hanging out with my gorgeous girlfriend Lou.
What are you really good at? I pretend to be really good at cooking but it doesn’t always work out. At the moment I am actually quite good at annoying people by singing the AA Blatch jingle all the time, it’s quite catchy.
If you could have a super power what would it be? Living a bit of distance out of town I think it would be pretty handy to be able to fly, quite the timesaver, not sure about the tights and cape though.
What is your pet hate? Despite having more tv channels than you can poke a stick at there are still times when it is impossible to find something worth watching.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. I have fond memories of family holidays with cousins to Forster. More recently we have explored the coastline around Newcastle, finding some nice little places you don’t hear much about.
