What do you do?
Make films. Draw pictures. Tell dad jokes to my son.

What do you love about the city you live in?
My community.

Where did you go for your last holiday?
South Coast NSW.

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
I feel like I’m meant to say Woodstock or something cool. But probably to some biblical time when something miraculous happened. Would give me so much clarity. And an amazing pub story.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us?
Ricotta & oregano meatballs.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
Not everyone pays tax, so death is truly the only guarantee in life. Accepting that can either be a head wind or a tail wind.

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
Ha. Nice try.

Are you happy with your work/ life balance?
No. But I love my life. And I love my work. And that makes me happy.

How do you define success?
By this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote:
“What is success? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!”
