How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
I’ve been in Parkes for about five years. I’m originally Mexican – from south of the border in Geelong. I love the family atmosphere. I have a young family and the kids can play in the street. It’s been such a welcoming community.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work?
I work at Onnies Coffee. I love my customer base, I really enjoy everyone who comes through. Of course, I also love making coffee.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends?
I love a full-bodied shiraz. I also play AFL for a team in Orange, and I try to go surfing at least once a quarter.
What are you really good at?
I’m really good at cooking. I love cooking for my family and friends. I’m pretty good at football too, and talking rubbish.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Teleporting, for sure. I’d teleport to the beach, or into a bank vault. There’s no way I’d be a hero if I had powers.
What is your pet hate?
Incorrect English. I’m constantly correcting people in my head. Also people who eat with their mouth open.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
It’s got to be Vietnam or Laos. We went tubing down a river in Laos. You get a tube at a little village and then sail down the river past all these bars, and they’d all throw you a rope and pull you in. There was a big party at the end too. It’s not just about the beer though, just floating along the river was really fun.
