Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

When I was a junior playing cricket for McKinnon Cricket Club, I used to play against Brad Hodge, who at that time was playing for Moorabbin Cricket Club. Just trying to bowl to him was impossible even then because he would hit a 4 or 6 almost every other ball.

I find it very rewarding knowing that I have helped someone who was really down find their passion for life again.

Who is the best person you’ve worked with and why?

I’ve worked with some great people over the years but I most valued working with previous manager – Cat – because she had faith in my skills and ability to do my job.
