How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I have lived here 15 years. I moved
here from Inverell as my wife is a Parkes local. I like the family life we have here, and spending time with my grandchildren.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I am retired. My previous job was as
Clerk for the County Council in Inverell.
What do you do in your spare time and on weekends? Fishing. We just came back from a weekend in Mudgee with my grandson. We went motorbike riding, kayaking and fishing.
What are you really good at? Not much. I do a few jobs around the house.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? Never thought about it. Life’s okay.
What is your pet hate? Dust and drought.
Tell us about your best holiday. That’ll be the next one. I did spend six weeks riding my motorbike around Australia with the Vietnam Vet Motorcycle Club to raise money, and loved North Queensland. We’ve been back there a few times.
