Three people I'd love to invite to dinner: Malcolm Turnbull, Rick Stein and Ray Hadley.
The most amazing thing I've ever done: Saved a suicidal young lady from gassing herself in her flat in my block at Bondi when I was 17 by climbing through her window. I received a letter from the Police Commissioner congratulating me.
The best advice I ever received: From my father, who was an atheist: "Do good for good is good to do."
I would spend my last $10 on: A glass of good chardonnay.
My biggest fear: Another world depression.
My fantasy job: A master chef like Rick Stein.
If I could travel back in time I'd love to: Take a cure for leukaemia to give to my mother who died in two weeks when I was 17.
My favourite phrase: "We need a change of government."
I wish hadn't: Bought so many cars during my life.
Always being asked: By my clients: "What's the economy going to do next?"
I'll never throw out: My cards from my two adult children.
Biggest fashion faux pas: Wearing a safari suit to work in a chartered accountant's office when I was young.
People say I look like: My grandson.
First car was: An early model Holden of course when I was 18.
What people may not know about me: I am a volunteer at Anglican Retirement Village where I’m reading my father’s poetry and life story to the residents. True love is...Hard to find.
Movie everyone should see:Love Actually.
Most embarrassing moment: Coming home for lunch in primary school and expelling a loud bang of gas in front of my conservative grandmother.
On my bedside table is: A card from my son titled ‘Best Dad Ever’.Earliest memory is: Helping my father as a junior caretaker in the flats we lived in at Bondi at every morning, gathering the empty beer bottles on each landing and storing them downstairs for cashing in by my father.
