What is your role at Hume Anglican Grammar?
Visual Arts and PE teacher at Donnybrook and Head of Learning - The Arts Primary.
Do you have a motto or personal mantra?
“Control what you can control.” Perhaps relevant to now is, “It is what it is.”
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
Family. Sleep or chocolate would come in as a close second.
Who has had the biggest impact on your career thus far and why?
I can’t narrow it down to one, but I have worked with some fantastic teachers who I have learnt a lot from and of course the students I teach who I learn something different about each day.
Favourite travel spot?
South East Asia, in particular Vietnam and parts of Thailand.
What’s the weirdest job you’ve ever had?
Not too many weird jobs. I did work for a week at a chicken farm once which put me off chickens, for a few days at least.
How do you define success?
You learn and grow from each setback you receive. You need to be resilient and willing to listen to feedback in order to improve and grow as a person.
Tell us two things most people don’t know about you…

2. I am known to be pretty keen to enter onto a dance floor when I see one.
