How long have you lived in or around Canowindra and what do you like about living here? I moved from Bermagui to Canowindra nearly two years ago. It was a top move but I do miss the salt water fishing.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy most about your work? I am a retired teacher of PE and Special Education. I do some private tutoring in Maths and English and I coach soccer, weightlifting and powerlifting. I like to see people move better and achieve their goals in sport and school.
What do you do to unwind after work or on weekends? I like catching cod in the Belubula and knocking off the cryptic crossword at Delice. But not Friday’s puzzle – the Friday cryptic is always bizarre, obtuse and obscure and I have to cheat with google to get Friday’s.
What are you really good at? I like to sit and write some lines, tie them together with some rhymes, but who decides if I’m ok, It’s up to you to say.
What is your pet hate? It is a tie between magpie swooping season and trying to rhyme with Canowindra.
If you could have a super power what would it be and why? To talk to magpies and ask them why they don’t like me.
What makes your day? The sun comes up, I’m breathing and I bench-press the same as the young fellas, Nick and Greg – now that is a good day!
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I had the breaststroke record with Canowindra Swim Club for two weeks until Matt Rice beat me severely.
