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.

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.

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.

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

I spent four years working in pubs and nightclubs in Brisbane.
I have a stutter.
