What do you do?
I help people understand their numbers and save time by making tricky things simple. Owning a small business doesn't need to be stressful.
When did you start at Growthwise?
It was September 2011. The sun was shining, the flowers were starting to bloom and the birds were singing! It was a great day and the start of something new.
Describe yourself in 3 words
Handsome, hairy, humourous.
Who is your favourite superhero?
Batman. He doesn't waste energy on words, I'd also love to live in Wayne Manor and drive the Batmobile.
Why did you decide to do what you do now?
I didn't choose the thug life. The thug life chose me.
Seriously though, I love what I do. I get to help someone every day and that makes me feel good.
What is your greatest achievement?
My son, Archer. I can't properly explain how it felt to hold him for the first time. Nothing can prepare you for it.
What did you spend your childhood doing?
Riding billy carts down stairs, climbing trees, reading books in the sun, making our own fireworks, playing computer games, eating heaps of Arnott's Shapes and playing Marco Polo at the pool. You could say I look back on it fondly!
Who would you love to have a drink with and why?
Bill Murray. I love his work, especially in all the films directed by Wes Anderson. He also looks like he'd be a lot of fun to spend some time with.
What's your favourite meal?
I love winter meals and big hearty stews. My favourite is a Flemish beef stew... and it's not a proper meal without a refreshing drink.
What do you do when you are not at Growthwise?
I like to exercise in the mornings. I find my days are more productive after a work out, so I try to get to the gym three days each week.I also love to spend as much time with my family as I can, whether it's just at home relaxing or out and about for swimming lessons, picnics and exploring. And on Sundays, you'll find me with my extended family at C3 Church Newcastle City.
1 thing you can't live without
My iPhone, but every now and then it's a good habit to disconnect and get some quiet time. Just a little sanity check to make sure it's not becoming my master.
