How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here? I have lived in Parkes for around 35 years. I wasn’t born here, but I call it my home town. What I like about Parkes is the people I have met over the years. Parkes is a community that has an endless supply of good people.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I work at Parkes Public School, and the thing I like about working here is the school community: the staff that I work with and the students’ families that I meet and greet every day.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I like to unwind by just lying on the lounge watching a good movie or TV programme.
What are you really good at? I don’t really know what I’m good at, but I do have a knack for looking at things differently.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? My super power would be teleporting.
What is your pet hate? I don’t think I have a pet hate, but if I did it would prob- ably be people not refilling the printer or photocopiers.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. I loved a Christmas and New Year holiday. My family went to the Gold Coast, doing all the theme parks and eating out. We stayed in a penthouse at a hotel for a week. Then we spent another week at Port Macquarie, where we just travelled around the area seeing the sights. One thrill was watching my son catch his first fish on his own. Awesome sight!
