How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like about living here?
About 20 years. Having lived in Sydney for 10 years, I much prefer to live in a small town. It’s a great place to raise a family.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? At the RMS. I enjoy playing a part in making the roads safer. Everyone uses roads.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? For many years I followed the kids to various sports. Lately it has been rugby union. I also try to get a bit done around the garden.
What are you really good at? I like sports photography. I contribute to the local papers, and put plenty of pics on social media where they turn up on peoples home pages and news feeds with funny comments, and in local newspapers in other towns.
If you could have a super power, what would it be? Time travel – walk with the dinosaurs, find out who shot JFK, go forward to next week and get the winning lotto numbers, etc.
What is your pet hate/s? I have a few (I’m old and grumpy: 1) Hypocritical people who travel the world in aeroplanes, live in a big house, use multiple cars, excessively heat up or cool down their open plan house, only drink bottled water etc. but consider themselves green. 2) The recent trend in reality TV, like Survival shows have little to do with survival. 3) People who stare at you in the street but don’t say hello.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. Went to England last year. I called it my Curries and Castles tour it was great. It’s not a holiday but every Sunday I have the family over for dinner. It doesn’t get better than that.
