Three people I would love to invite to dinner: Nelson Mandela, Kerry Packer and Jesus.

The best advice I ever received: Buy the worst car that your ego can afford.

The most amazing thing I've ever done: Become a dad for the first time.

If I was down to my last $10 I would spend it on: Something I could sell for more than $10.

My greatest fear: Waking up with a spider in my mouth.

My fantasy job: A cartoon voiceover guy.

If I could have a super power it would be: Super speed. Imagine how much you could get done if you did everything 10 times as quickly?

My favourite phrase: "I take back everything I said about you."

My hidden talents: Dishwasher stacking - It's not how many you get in, it's how many come out clean that matters.

If I could travel back in time, I would love to see: I'd love to see Parramatta just before the first settlers. The pristine beauty of the river and surrounds must have been amazing.

My most embarrassing moment was... Watching Team America with my mum and nan and I picked the movie.

The one thing I will never throw out: I still have a black shirt from 1994 that I wear occasionally. I will throw it out eventually though.

True love is: A sweet tooth and a packet of Tim Tams.

My first car was: A Mitsubishi L200 ute – great for camping and surf boards.  

I’m always being asked: Don’t I know you from somewhere?

What people may not know about me is: I’m really quite a funny guy.   

Wierdest thing in my glovebox:  A human finger in a plastic bag.

My biggest fashion faux pas was: I once had the greatest mullet of all time – it was the 80’s after all!

I wish I hadn’t: Said ‘yes’ to this questionnaire – How many more questions??

My earliest memory is: Family holidays up the north coast crammed into the Datsun 180B singing Carol King and Air Supply. 

On my bedside table is: A bottle of oil and a weird set of metal tong things, assorted masks and wigs.  

People say I look like: Everyone says I’m the perfect blend of Johnny Depp, Robert Downy Junior, Brad Pitt and George Clooney – I don’t see it really…?

A movie I think everyone should see: Team America. Well maybe not your Mum or your Nan but everyone else.

In the future…Nobody will wear pants. They will all have really long shirts instead to save on washing and help the environment. 

Favourite book as a child:Scuffy the Tugboat.
