Other Stuff

When not paddling most likely to be found: A suitably relaxing watering hole in Balmain watching the world go by.
Three people you’d like to invite to dinner:
Gordon Ramsey (to cook and so I could tell him it looks and tastes like sh*t just for a reaction) and seated at the table would be Richard Branson, Ana Ivanovic and a living Albert Einstein.
