Outside of work: I enjoy playing hockey in my spare time and have been a loyal member of the Adelaide University Hockey Club since 2006. I am a Carlton supporter and enjoy relaxing and watching the footy with friends and family, and am an avid cricket fan. My favourite 5 days of the year are the Adelaide Test Match. I grew up on a farm in the South East and when we can my wife Jacqui and I enjoy heading down there for a break and to visit the family.
