My current job is..as one of the Principal Legal Counsel in Foxtel’s fabulous Legal Team.

My first job was..selling skateboards to my school friends and teachers when I was only 13 (this was before they were available in many retail stores), I then went on to work in our local sports store.

At school I was known for..my love of photography.  When small grants were available for projects for “talented students” a couple of friends and I put in a successful submission to secure funding (and a week out of classes) for a project on trick photography and special effects.  This led me to be voted the person most likely to become “a flasher”.

The TV show I can’t miss is.....(or was) Sons of Anarchy and any of the car and bike restoration programs on Discovery Turbo.

My secret guilty pleasure is.....not so secret to those who know me well, I love to spend time on the weekends cruising on my Harley Davidson with by biker buddies.  Five of us hired Harleys in the Las Vegas a few years ago and cruised through Death Valley and Yosemite National Park and other parts of California for a week.

It’s not cool but ....when I am not out on my Harley on the weekends I may be out driving with the top down in my gas guzzling classic Mustang.

Friends say I..am a fiercely loyal friend (just before they ask me for a lift home from the party as they know I don’t drink but I do love to drive)

The new TV show I’d like to commission is....one that would follow the restoration, by my extremely talented friend Chad Parrish, of a historic Shelby race car. (Can you see a pattern emerging? – Yes I am a petrol head)

The thing I most love about our industry is.....the number of passionate and creative people that I work with that are all striving to provide a better entertainment experience for each Australian every day, regardless of whether they share my tastes in programming.
