Place of birth
Solihull, UK (more of a Leicester lad though)
Mt Eliza, Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne
Favourite imaginary client?
Treasury Wine Estates was pretty close… IMG would be good, or perhaps the World Triathlon Corporation, now Wanda Sports.
We know what you do by day, what do you do by night?
Sleep… I have a family with two kids (13 and 14) and I participate in a range of endurance events, mostly triathlon or running related.
If you could have lunch with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
My Father, so I could share with him my life and experiences over the past 16 years and show him my beautiful family.
What might we be surprised to know about you?
I’m quite competitive! And I converted fully to supporting Australia in sport back in 2011, much to the annoyance and incredulity of many of my UK friends and family.
