What is your history with Bundaberg?

Being born in Bundaberg, I grew up playing rugby league and cricket before moving to Brisbane Grammar School for boarding school for Years 11 and 12.

I then moved back to Bundaberg for a job opportunity following a six-year stint in Brisbane while studying at the University of Queensland.

What is the best part about your role?

Working with people and helping them achieve a goal or something important to them that they never thought they’d be able to achieve.

I also relish being able to help people make long-term and sustainable lifestyle changes.

What are your hobbies/interests?

I have to admit, sometimes it seems searching for my ball at Coral Cove golf course.

I am a very big coffee-lover, but outside of work I enjoy exercising and particularly fishing, with plenty of great spots around the region.

What is the is the best place in the Bundaberg region?

For a beverage: Neilson’s surf club on a Sunday afternoon.

My favourite beach: Elliot Heads.

Food: Indulge Café.

After 1am: Hungry Tum.

What is something people might not know about you?

I spent four years working in pubs and nightclubs in Brisbane.

I have a stutter.

If you could bring one thing to Bundaberg what would it be?

Uber for the convenience and Grill’d burgers, of which I am a fan.
