What is your job?

I am the se­nior res­i­den­tial prop­erty man­ager at Dick­ens Real Es­tate in Bright. I look after res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties on be­half of our land­lords and man­age the ten­an­cies in those prop­er­ties.

How did you come to be in this job?

I orig­i­nally did my real es­tate agent li­cence in Queens­land and when I re­lo­cated with my fam­ily to Bright I wanted to re­main in the real es­tate sec­tor. When a po­si­tion be­came avail­able at Dick­ens I ap­plied and I am still here more than eight years later.

What do you love about your job?

I the love diver­sity; no two days are the same. I love meet­ing peo­ple from all walks of life and I re­ally love be­ing able to match a home to a per­son or fam­ily.

What else do you do in the com­mu­nity?

Over the years, as my chil­dren have gone through school, I have been in­volved in many of their lo­cal sport­ing events.

For six years I was a com­mit­tee mem­ber for the Bright Soc­cer Club and have vol­un­teered each week­end at the Bright Ju­nior Foot­ball Club when my son played.

I have also vol­un­teered at Brighter Days – an an­nual fes­ti­val that raises funds for SUDC (Sud­den Un­ex­plained Death in Child­hood) and the DEBRA Foun­da­tion for chil­dren with epi­der­mol­y­sis bul­losa.

If the per­son you would most like to meet came to Bright, who would that be and what would you show them?

To have Neil Finn from Crowded House would be amaz­ing.

I would love to show him the rich mu­sic scene we have here and its diver­sity - from lo­cal gigs in Bright Brew­ery and pubs to huge, week­end­long fes­ti­vals.

We have some fab­u­lous lo­cal ta­lent and I think our stun­ning town would be in­spi­ra­tional for his song writ­ing.

What book are you cur­rently read­ing?

A book called ‘A Lit­tle Life’ by Hanya Yanag­i­hara.
