I’m, an ex-cocky from Esperance WA. After leaving our Scaddan farm, I got a job at the local high school Ag College, where I run the workshop and teach kids how to weld, build fences and gates and do general mechanical repairs.
My interests have broadened since living in town.
I taught myself to kite buggy and have now built 5 buggies. Buggying is a great adrenalin rush and I really enjoy it, particularly when there is speed involved. I also love to just cruise the beaches in the buggy on a low tide.
I have also really embraced the challenge of land sailing. I designing, build and race my own land yachts. I compete around West Aust and I'm lucky enough to be the current WA champion in the mini 5.6 class.
As for flying, I got my private license in 1988. In August this year I will compete in the Outback Air Race to raise money for the flying doctor service. The race is across Australia finishing on Hamilton Island.
