The challenge for the industry is… putting Australia on everyone’s bucket list.
The things I like about my job are… the challenge of working with a relatively small company that is rapidly opening hotels around the world.
And the frustrations are… working with a relatively small company that is rapidly opening hotels around the world.
If I didn’t work in travel I would… be bored.
Favourite airline? Air NZ strike a great balance of personality and professionalism.
My proudest moment is… every time my one year old boy learns something new.
The naughtiest thing I ever did was… wagging school to go fishing.
I try to relax by… striking a balance between too little and too much wine.
The last time I feared for my life was… caught in a rip in big surf off the Gold Coast.
If I can, I always try to… avoid looking stupid. I’m not very good at avoiding it though.
I really wish I had… more hours in the day.
The best advice I’ve ever received was… to have goals, not dreams.
I don’t understand why… people just can’t all get along.
My greatest weakness is… when I haven’t had enough sleep.
And my greatest strength is… choosing the right people around me.
If I won a $1 million lottery (aside from travelling), I would… start some sort of social enterprise.
If I was prime minister I would… do everything we thought Malcolm Turnbull would do but hasn’t.

I’ve always wanted to travel to… Alaska.
My favourite holiday was… lazing by the water in a house at 1770 one Easter. Despite seeing a lot of the world, I’ve never been more relaxed or inspired than driving up the Coast for a week of doing not much.
