Neil as an individual
If you weren’t an accountant: I’d like to be a professional fisherman.
Outside of work: I enjoy fishing, playing the odd game of golf and relaxing with my young family and friends at our shack on the Yorke Peninsula. As a Crows and Redlegs fan I get to as many games as possible during the season. As past participant in the Variety Bash I take up any chance to support this charity and its causes. I also enjoy the occasional 4-wheel driving expedition and have recently obtained a Learners Licence for my motorbike.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 2 items would you take: A fishing rod and an umbrella
