Greg as an individual
If you weren’t an accountant: I would be a Trekking Guide. I love the outdoors and nature, love people and love keeping fit so this would tie all of these passions together.
Outside of work: I enjoy trekking and being in nature. I love travelling, my favourite place to visit being Nepal where I have visited ten times. I enjoy most sports – being active and using my body, but specifically playing golf, tennis and running. I have completed 3 marathons. I love watching golf and the footy. As a Crows supporter I enjoy giving my friends who support Port a bit of a hard time too.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 2 items would you take: A fishing rod and a surf board.
