How long have you lived in Parkes? I came here in 1972 so over 40 years.
Where do you work? I run Parkes Optical Services and The Coffee Pot. Interesting combination! Yes I bought
the coffee shop first and optical dispensing came afterwards.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Ireland, I loved it when I was there last time.
What are your worst habits? I procrastinate and leave things until the last minute, much to the annoyance of my wife.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I don’t have much! I’m heavily involved in the Rotary Club, I used to coach basketball but lately I’m focussing on my family and grandchildren.
What do you enjoy about your work? I like dealing with people, the social aspect of it.
How do you take your coffee? I usually drink coffee with hazelnut flavouring topped with cinnamon.
