What is your guilty pleasure?
I love pretty much any beer and cheese.……but not at the same time.

Name three people you would love to have dinner with and why?
– Tiger Woods. As one of the hardest working athletes of all time, I’d love to know what makes him tick. How on Earth he is swinging the golf club at the speed he is with the injuries he has had would be worth the price of admission alone.
– James Hird. As a long-suffering Essendon supporter, I’d love to know the full story behind what actually happened with the “drug” saga.
– Sam Pang. He is a genuinely funny man. He would keep the night interesting with his quick-witted humour.

What is your favourite place in the world?
I haven’t travelled the world but from what I have seen, I could spend a whole heap more time touring the south island of New Zealand. I love the scenery. Constantly changing but always spectacular.

Are you a book or movie person? And what is your favourite one?
Definitely a movie person. Not sure I’ve got a favourite one but if I had to choose it would have to be out of Happy Gilmore and The Castle.

Who is the best team in the world, apart from our Sports & Spinal Albury crew?
As much as it pains me to say, the New England Patriots must be right up there. What they, or Tom Brady (depending on who you talk to) have been able to achieve is incredible. Either them or the European Ryder Cup team, who always seem to be the underdog against the USA but continually deliver on the big stage.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
I once got concussed on a golf course.
