Co-Owner, It’s Paint – Finishing Touches
Suburb: West End.
AKA: I haven’t had a nickname since school. Back then I was called TED as in teddy bear.
I’m renowned for: Eye matching paint colours at work and giving expert technical advice.
Only a local would know … all the tracks to the top of Castle Hill.
My most memorable holiday was… my wife and I did a three day cruise from Townsville to Cairns via the outer reef which was fantastic. Met and made some new friends from Wales and the USA. A holiday in Fiji at X’mas and New Year in 2010/11 was also special.
Right now I wish I was… finished renovating our house in West End, but we’ve only just begun.
My favourite day is: Sunday (sleep in, relax).
The biggest influence in my life was/is: Obviously parents figure heavily in my life influences, but I also had a great football coach from 14 to 16 years old.
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was… my wife thought putting chocolate sauce into an old tomato sauce squeeze bottle was a good idea. Unfortunately chocolate sauce is a terrible condiment on a meat pie. The kids thought it was hilarious though.
Someone famous I met was: Does Steve Price count? Who nose?
My motto is: Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright it’s not the end yet.
Song: Time by Pink Floyd and Little Black Submarines, The Black Keys
Shop: One that I can get in and out of quick
Eat: Anything Mexican
Drink: Really don’t have a favourite but enjoy a wine or two with dinner
