My first job was... cleaning tables at the Sirloin Stockade. I eventually worked my way up to dishwasher, then deep fryer.
I have been greatly influenced in life by... Hunter S Thompson and his Gonzo journalism. Participation, honesty, and not taking things too seriously.
When I'm not at work I spend time... Chasing 4 boys, tending to the garden patch and playing basketball.
The last interesting book that I read was... If Chins Could kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor by Bruce Campbell. The star of The Evil Dead Movies and the Adventures of Brisco Country Jr on his life in Hollywood.
At school, I was known for... my rap radio show at the college radio station. I couldn’t find enough rap to fill a three hour show.
My guiltiest pleasure is... Listeing to the Howard Stern show in the car on the way to work every day.
My favourite movie of all time is... The Blues Brothers. “We’re on a mission from God”.
I know it's not cool but I love... the Beverly Hillbillies.
One of my favourite series on STV is... Just one? Not possible. Sons of Anarchy, Californication, Boardwalk Empire, Magic City.
The person I most admire is... Howard Stern. He built a career on honesty and not compromising.
My friends say that I... haven’t lost my American accent/sound really Australian, depending on where they are.
My hope for the future is that... country music becomes accepted as mainstream entertainment in Australia like it is in North America
