The one profession that I would like to try is…runninga fishing/adventure company somewhere in Northern Queensland.

If I could have been at a recording session, it would have beenwith…Miles Davis. Having read just about every book writtenon him, to experience his genius and leadership in a recording sessionwould be just incredible.

The last great book I read was…King of theGypsies, a story about and written by Bartley Gorman.

The moment I knew I was in the right profession waswhen…I found out that I could recommend developments toFairlight's products that thoroughly satisfied our customer's needs andrequirements. There is nothing better than seeing a customer's facewhen you have delivered something that makes their job easier and theirbusiness grow.

Currently in my CD changer…are a lot of Miles Davis CDsand Songs From the Load (Shaun Kerrigan, Ian Morgan and LukasBower).

When I'm not at work, you can find me…on the golfcourse, unless I'm fishing.
