The person that most influenced my decisions in life when I was younger was... there were two people if that's okay? My Dad who worked in the recording industry in the 50’s and 60’s making radio commercials for companies such as Arnott’s and Colgate who told me I should try and get a job at that firm called George Patterson where he used to do some work, thanks Dad. And, my first media boss Peter Cornelius who was then George Patterson’s Sydney Media Director explained to me media buying was not just about crosses in boxes, but who takes you to the best restaurants.

The last interesting book that I read was... Who Wants To Be A Billionaire? The James Packer Story by Paul Barry.

My first job was... in 1986 when I joined the despatch department of George Patterson in Nth Sydney…..I was 4 at the time.

My guiltiest pleasure is... this was a tough one for me and I was going to say something like…..eat a wafer thin slice of chocolate after my weekly triathlon race, but seriously I don’t do triathlons but I do love chocolate!

At school, I was known for... leadership, I ended up being School Captain of Chatswood High School.

When I’m not at work I spend my time… with my family and friends, and spending most Saturdays driving around Sydney for the kids sport.

My favourite movie of all time is... Caddy Shack of course, could there be anything else?

I know it's not cool but I love... wearing a knee length floral dress with an off white clutch bag and matching pumps…..did I say that aloud??

One of my favourite series on STV is... it's difficult to choose one particular series, so I’ll say all programs on Aurora Community Channel, that’s channel 183 on Foxtel and home of the Aurora Short Film Festival!

The person I most admire is... my wife Katrina who works plus manages me and the lives of our 4 primary school age children whilst maintaining a home, she is quite remarkable.

My friends say that I am... dependable, I make them laugh and I’m a little bit of an extrovert. They also say I should save wearing my Borat mankini for special occasions only!

My hope for the future is that...  I was going to say something about sustainable living, world peace, humanity and the environment like many of my peers and colleagues before me, but I’m not going to….. My 11 year old son Jack wants to be a Swiss Banker and has promised me an Aston Martin with his first pay cheque so selfishly that will be my hope for the future…..go Jack!
