The person that most influenced my decisions in life when I was younger was... definitely a tie between mum and dad. They were good enough to encourage me with whatever I was into. This meant driving around Sydney A LOT to help me play whatever sport I could participate in.

The last interesting book that I read was... Crisis Economics by Nouriel Roubini. I think we are still in for a few more economic twists and and turns.

My first job was... working at the local chemist delivering prescriptions to patients after school. As a 10 year old it seemed incomprehensible that I could actually be paid to ride my bike around the suburbs.

My guiltiest pleasure is... couchtime, FOX SPORTS, remote.

At school, I was known for... if there was some sort of sport on offer, I was usually not too far away.

When I’m not at work I spend my time… with great friends and family, interspersed with falling off either a kayak or skis.

My favourite movie of all time is... When we were Kings - amazing movie!

I know it's not cool but I love... Hawaiian shirts and Ugg boots, a genuinely misunderstood fashion combination.

One of my favourite series on STV is... Anthony Bourdain, NO Reservations, great for unique travel and food stories.

The person I most admire is... my brother, a great dad and a very good man (when he's not talking about work).

My hope for the future is that... the next 40 years provide just as many stories and adventures as the first 40.
