How long have you lived in Parkes and why do you like living here? I’ve lived here all my life. I like the laid-back country lifestyle and being close to family.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy about your work? I work at Roads and Maritime Services and I enjoy getting out on the road, meeting new people and improving the safety of the road for all users.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? After work I like taking my dog for a walk and enjoying the fresh air. On weekends I like to get out and experience new places.
What are you really good at? Losing my phone and finding it in random places.
If you could have a super power what would it be? The ability to predict the future. It would be good to know what’s going to happen next.
What is your pet hate? Bad drivers.
Tell us about your best holiday ever. My first overseas trip was to Christchurch in New Zealand. I went a few years after the earthquake and to see half a city in ruins was an eye opening experience but they found some creative ways to fill in the empty spaces.
