Maker and Designer at Rhicreations
I’m renowned for: Making teeny tiny paper cranes.
Only a local would know… I’m currently President of the Townsville Boardgamers Club with approximately 30+ members. It’s a group that meets up every fortnight to play modern boardgames. No Monopoly in sight – it’s great!
My most memorable holiday was… saving up my money for over a year, quitting my job and then spending eight months backpacking around the world with my partner. We visited New Zealand, Hawaii, Canada, United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Germany, Finland, Switzerland, France, Italy and the Philippines. I’d do it all again in a heartbeat – but maybe with a few more luxuries added in.
Right now I wish I was… travelling again… and somewhere colder than Townsville.
My favourite day is: Any day I get to relax at home and I’ve just got stuck into a really good RPG on the computer. Bonus if I get to co-op the game with my partner. Double bonus if it’s also raining.
The biggest influence in my life was/is: My dad. As a shed tinkerer he taught me the joy in creating just for the fun of it. He still helps me today, like when I need a new display or two.
Someone famous I met was: I’ve been lucky enough to meet a few of my favourite comedians including David O’Doherty, Stephen K Amos, Tripod, Axis of Awesome and The Umbilical Brothers. All of them were super nice to talk to!
My motto is: Currently used in our household when I try to justify buying new things; “Buying art supplies is never wasted money.”
