THBC: When did you start at Tweed Heads Bowls Club?

I started in 2017 as a casual.

THBC: What is your role at Tweed Heads Bowls Club? 

While I was casual, I used to work with the maintenance department, the purchasing department and as a store person. I also worked upstairs on the floor on the weekend.

In March 2019, I was offered a full-time position as a store person in the purchasing department.

THBC: What does your average day at work look like?

  • Stocktake and fill up all the bars
  • Ensure storerooms or fridges are not overloaded
  • Order stock as required
  • Take delivery of goods and supplies
  • Unload goods and scan or check them against order forms
  • Rotate stock
  • Manage Stock Rooms
  • Manage the Keg room – keg changing
  • Keep the beer lines nice and clean

During this shut down period I have been helping Doug and Murray with Club maintenance.

THBC: Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Ballarat, Victoria.

THBC: Why did you move to the Gold Coast

I came for a holiday visiting my brother and friends, and I did not want to go back to the cold. I moved in 2005.

THBC: What are your hobbies?

Since I was a kid, I always loved fixing things and needed to understand how they worked. Nowadays, I especially love maintaining my Holden Commodore HSV XU6. I also love watching car racing in any forms – live or on TV. I am intrigued and amazed by the Ancient Egyptian Architecture and Ancient Roman history. I have watched a lot of documentaries, but there is nothing better than to see them firsthand. Last year I was lucky enough to visit Rome, I was just amazed by how they built the colosseum, the Roman forum and the Palatine Hill. However, Egyptian Pyramids are still an enigma, and I cannot wait to visit the Great Pyramids of Giza as they are some of the most intriguing manmade structures in history.

THBC: What is your favourite meal from Tweed Heads Bowls Club? 

I love Roast Pork; I order it nearly every day. I also really enjoy Erin’s gourmet pies.

THBC: Where did you travel overseas? 

I have been to France a couple of times as my partner is French (that’s you!!!). She is from the South of France, a town called Toulouse. We visited South West of France, Barcelona, Paris and Rome as well.

We were supposed to go this May to visit the family and Ireland; however, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our trip.
