How long have you lived in Parkes? I moved here two years ago from Sydney.
Where do you work? With my parents at Smeaton’s Bakehouse.
What do you enjoy most about your job? Customer interaction – it is the most satisfying part of hospitality work, and when you try out new products and get good feedback about it.
What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy watching sport and movies, and often go back to Sydney to catch up with friends.
How do you like your coffee? It depends on the day and my mood. After making coffee for 20 years, I mostly enjoy a latte standard with no syrup and little sugar not to bastardise the flavour of the coffee.
What makes your day? I am a fairly optimistic person and usually wake up in a good mood and have a good day, so I don’t need something to make my day. It is special though when customers say they like what we do.
What is your favourite food? I enjoy any food that has been made with effort and love!
