Family: I’ve got two brothers, a sister, mum, dad, and my partner.

Hobbies: I fish most weekends, play golf and football, and I play a bit of tennis as well.

Favourite drink: Johnny Walker and Coke.

If you could invite one person, dead or alive, for a Sunday roast who would it be? James Hird, he’d have a few stories.

If you had to be a woman for a day who would you be: I don’t know why I’m saying this but probably Oprah.


Who’s your turf god? 
Dean Bailey, he’s at Rosanna Golf Club. I was under him there for 4 years. He’s been the biggest impact and mentor for me.

What’s been your biggest cock-up? I haven’t had too many, but probably putting a work vehicle into a bunker is the worst thing, that’s as bad as it gets.

Funniest moment you’ve had in the workplace: At Rosanna, pulling a 5kg Murray Cod out of the pond, still alive, by hand, because it was too big for the pond.  

What’s your motto: Always stay positive and energetic, striving to reach higher goals.

Who would you turn gay for?  James Hird again.
