Gary Burchett

My first job was... scrubbing pots in a kitchen. The highlight was the mandatory gourmet feed before each shift.

I have been greatly influenced in life by... musical geniuses such as Black Francis, Dave Grohl and Perry Farrell.

When I'm not at work I spend time... investing in my two adorable daughters.

The last interesting book that I read was... ‘Lights Out in Wonderland’ by DBC Pierre. A vivid tale laced with debauchery and decadence.

At school, I was known for... my fixation with JAG clothing.

My guiltiest pleasure is... drinking my wages in fine Hunter Shiraz.

My favourite movie of all time is... Amadeus.

One of my favourite series on STV is...  The Simpsons. Speaks to so many people on so many levels.

The person I most admire is... my remarkable wife. Mother extraordinaire, businesswoman, social animal & voice of reason. All in one day mind you!

My friends say that very fortunate to have good mates.

My hope for the future is that... good fortune favours my family and friends. Owning a winery wouldn’t go astray.
