Sum yourself up: Easygoing dude who likes to party and loves talking to people about anything — especially music or fishing.

One thing you would change about Campbelltown? More live music venues.

Your earliest memory. Riding my bicycle into the house when I was four or five and moving from Ingleburn to Varroville in 1992. It was a huge move going from the 'burbs to an acreage.

If there is one thing you would like readers to know about you, what is it? I was in a boy band called Fancy. We had a huge hit called Abacus. Check it out on YouTube.

How did you find the experience of community radio? I loved doing Amped. Dean (the other host) and I got to play awesome music by Australian and Campbelltown's best bands and artists. We interviewed great people and went to some amazing shows.

What is it about music and being in a band that you find appealing? When playing covers at corporate functions or weddings, getting the crowd up and dancing all night is a good feeling. When playing originals at a live show, keeping a crowd entertained and wanting more for the entire duration you're on stage.

The things you couldn't live without? Family, friends, girlfriend, music — and oxygen.

What does your future look like in 10 years? Not working because a song I've played on has sold four billion units and the royalties are keeping me cashed up — supporting my family and doing what I love doing.
