Daniel Mitchell is born and bred in Bondi Beach. When he’s not working as structural engineer, he’s busy running his locally based tutoring business, HSC Edge. Daniel shares his local favourites with The Beast…

How long have you lived here?
I’m Bondi born and bred.

What’s your favourite beach? Definitely Clovelly. The snorkelling is fantastic and it’s a perfect spot to avoid the summer crowds.

What’s your favourite eatery? Out of the Blue in Clovelly, hands down. It’s been my go-to chicken burger since I can remember.

Where do you like to have a drink? I like to head down to Bondi Bowling Club. It is a great place for a few afternoon drinks with friends.

Do you have a favourite sporting team? The Chooks have always been my team growing up.

What music are you into at the moment? I’ve been into a lot of acoustic stuff lately. I saw Jose Gonzales at the Opera House, which was a truly amazing performance.

Who is your favourite person? It’s too hard to separate a single favourite, but my parents, Susie and Tony, are up there as my faves.

What do you get up to on the weekends? I’m a keen trail runner, so like to get out to the National Parks on the weekend for some running and hiking.

What do you do for work? When I’m not tutoring and looking after the business side of HSC Edge, I’m a structural engineer for an engineering consultancy firm.

What’s your favourite thing about work? Personally, for me, I have always found teaching very rewarding. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the continual improvement in our students and the happiness it brings to their families.

Do you have a favourite quote? “Don’t take life too seriously; you’ll never get out of it alive” – Elbert Hubbard (19th Century US writer).

Any other words of wisdom for readers of The Beast?
