When I’m not at work I spend my time…  travelling, fishing or mountain biking with a good dose of general fitness as often as possible.

The person that most influenced my decisions in life when I was younger was… my 5 siblings, mostly for the better, but a lot of the time we were just getting into trouble together and learning from mistakes. A lot of pointing and laughing…

The last interesting book that I read was….. Jasper Jones (no, not because of the surname matching mine!), but it is about a teenage half caste boy growing up in country Australia and the assumptions we make about people, great read and laugh-out-loud funny parts.

My first job was…. doing maintenance for rental properties, good training ground for being handy and seeing first hand what tenants do to rentals.

My guiltiest pleasure is….. why do pleasures have to be guilty? Don’t believe in the question …

At school, I was known for…. being a bit of a chatterbox, can you believe it! Will tell you all about it one day.

My favourite movie of all time is….. Top Gun was pretty cool at the time, Tom Cruise has since gone on to destroy it for me.

I know it’s not cool but I love…. a three quarter latte, but have to whisper it if I order it in country towns.

The person I most admire is…… the person who came up with the paper clip, super handy!

My friends say that I…. should be gagged after six beers.

My hope for the future is that…. technology actually delivers on the promise of helping us live our lives better, instead of just frustrating the s**t out of everyone and needing to be replaced every two years costing us all a lot of money!
