When did you start at 98five and have you had any roles other than what you do now?

I started at 98five Sonshine FM in February 1994 as a casual announcer on Saturday nights, which quickly turned into a fulltime announcer on Mid-Dawns, from 12am to 5.30am 5 days a week.  I have also been one of the announcer trainers and producing for special programs, as well as one of the voice overs for sponsorships from time to time. .

What does your ideal Saturday look like?

A bit of a sleep in, followed by a trip out to have a coffee and breakfast with my wife at our favourite coffee place. A bit of a walk. Some op-shopping. Late lunch. Catch up with friends. Get to a Saturday evening church meeting. Or just stay home with my wife and chat, do crosswords, jigsaws, or watch a DVD.

Definitely it would be able to drink unlimited free coffee at any coffee shop. Who needs Wi-Fi? (Disconnect to reconnect!!!)
