How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I moved back to Parkes about three and a half years ago. I like being close to my ageing mum. I also like the usual dry climate of Parkes, and quiet of country life.
What is your favourite thing about your working life? Feeling useful and meeting community members.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? A quiet corner in the countryside, surrounded by nature.
What makes you laugh the most? I love a good joke, clever memes, people who can laugh at themselves, and films that make me laugh even after having seen them half a dozen times, such as Back to the Future and the Bud Spencer and Terence Hill spaghetti westerns.
If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? Magically learn to play piano in a day.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why? I would willingly peek into the early 20th century, to experience what it was like growing up then.
If you were ruler of your own country what would be the first law you would introduce?
The protection of human basic freedoms for all.
Do you believe in random acts of kindness, and which is your favourite one? Kindness always moves the heart, doesn’t it? Courtesy is kindness. Kindness received has the ability to open the heart and make one want to share that kindness with others.
What is one thing you will never do again? Never stop trying.
