What is it about your job that makes you want to get up in the
My customers and the excitement of never knowing what your
day has in store for you. I am a thrill-seeker from way back
What was your first job?
It was working for the National Film unit in Wellington
NZ putting together films for the motion picture industry. Some
made it to top ratings others were not so good.
If you didn't have to work what would you be doing?
Driving trucks or flying planes.
What was your scariest experience and how did you deal with it?
Travelling across from Wellington to Christchurch on a
cargo ferry during a really horrific storm with a new born baby (as
if this wasn't scary enough) and then being asked by the crew
to help hold up a rather spooked race horse below; now this was

If money was no object, what car would you be driving?
Simple answer I would by-pass a car as a Kenworth Truck
is definitely on the top of my list
Favourite local restaurant, and why?
In Melbourne Wayne and I would go to Montania restaurant
in Mountaingate Ferntree gully, the food was always great and
plenty of it. On Sundays we would go there for breakfast - French
toast. Now that we are living in Perth I have only been to Sizzler
so we will have to find out where are the best places to go.

What do you do for a hobby?
When I do get spare time I like to do Bow hunting this is
similar to Archery except you have to walk through the bush and hit
targets, these are at different distances and as I don't have
sights and release aid fitted to my bow I consider this more of a
challenge to hit the target.
As it is the year of the Tiger, this is one of my
favorites from my dear Dads shed wall:
Tis better to have lived as a Tiger for one day
Than as a sheep for a thousand years
