How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I have lived in the Parkes area 40 years, I was born here. My family are very much local and I enjoy the rural setting.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I currently find myself between jobs, but I have had my hands full with Les Misérables! At the moment I’m enjoying playing a larger role being a dad and being available for people in need.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? As a tabletop war games fan, I enjoy gaming, painting and building miniatures whenever I can. I also build, configure and use desktop computers.
What makes you proud? To see a job completed and done well. Also the accomplishments of my family and friends.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? Probably a jaguar. I have always liked the big cats, there’s just something about the grace and strength of them.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? The Lord of the Rings trilogy and books. My brother read The Hobbit to me when I was four, it started a life-long fascination with high fantasy.
Tell us about your best holiday? When I was 17, I went on a youth exchange to Tahiti for five weeks. It was truly magical and I loved it. The culture, food and people were lovely and I would love to go back there someday with my family.
What is on your bucket list? I would love to tour from Syria, through Egypt, Rome and into Europe someday.
