How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I grew up in Parkes through the Eighties, and moved back with my family in 2013. I enjoy the close and supportive community and find it an ideal place to raise a family.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? My wife Marty and I own and manage Regional Business Supplies. I love finding solutions for our customers’ needs and the flexibility of running my own business.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? I am an avid Lego collector and builder with my daughter Alex.
What makes you proud? Being part of a regional community that looks out for one another.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? I think a kookaburra has my ideal outlook on life. A bit of food, a bit of travelling around and a whole lot of laughing.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? I really enjoyed Matt Damon in “The Martian”, especially his adaption to his solitude and per- severance to protect his own life.
Tell us about your best holiday. We had a fantastic Hawaii and Disney World holiday in 2014, and are very keen to repeat it with the new Star Wars park opening soon.
What is on your bucket list? Travelling and experiencing Egypt and the ancient ruins by cruising down the Nile is a trip I’ve always liked to make.
