Favourite Beach: Tamarama. A beautiful, magic beach. I enjoy surfing there most mornings, on my kneeboard, before work.
Favourite Eatery: Balusu’s South Indian Food, 259 Bondi Road. I find that it is curry nice food.
Watering Hole: I mostly drink peppermint tea, so for me a watering hole is where I get rid of some of the peppermint tea.
Sporting Team: The main sport that I follow is surfing, which is exciting, fun and great to watch.
Music: Pop music from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, as on 2WS – Elton John, Rod Stewart, Abba, The Beatles, Neil Young, etc.
Person: I admire and appreciate Eckhart Tolle, a new age teacher who wrote ‘A New Earth’. He has wonderful ideas on how we can be accepting and loving of our self, our life and everyone and everything.
Weekend Activity: I like to surf at the local beaches, mostly Tamarama or Mackenzies Bay or Bronte. I also like to go bushwalking in Sydney’s great National Parks and picturesque coastal areas.
Quote: “Love is all there is.”
Favourite Thing About Your Work: I like interacting with and talking with lots of the interesting and openhearted people who live in Bondi and elsewhere. I am happy to encourage and help people to be healthy, fit and enjoy their lives.
Final Word: It is a beautiful world full of beautiful people.
