Smokin’ Joe the new boy in town
Our journalist talks Cowboys and denim
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life? Leonardo DiCaprio.
Although I don’t remotely compare in the looks department, his acting versatility is unlike anyone I’ve ever seen. Therefore I’d be confident he would do the best job of portraying me. What do you think the greatest invention has been? The computer. To see how far we’ve come as a society since the computer was introduced into society is unbelievable. It has made everything from social interaction to our jobs far more convenient.
Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?
Not particularly. A lot of friends of mine would wear a lucky pair of underwear or a lucky pair of socks when playing sport, however I never believed in superstitions to get positive results.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Although I don’t wear double denim personally, I would like to see it make a return as it reminds me of a number of the 70s and 80s movies I watched growing up and it provides me with great nostalgia.
What three things do you think of most each day? Family, my job and sport.
Being the youngest of five children means there is always something happening in my family.
Although I’m only new to the Dalby Herald, I think about the journalism industry as a whole quite often as I always try and find ways to improve in my chosen profession.
Lastly, I love everything sport, both as a competitor growing up and as a fan.
Being from North Queensland originally I’m a huge Cowboys fan and their 2015 premiership win is still my greatest moment as a sports fan.
What’s been the best decision you’ve made in your life so far?
Moving south and out of my comfort zone.
If you could replace one body part with a super bionic replacement what body part and what features would the new replacement have? Bionic legs that make me exceptionally fast; whenever I played sport it was like I was running in quicksand. What was your first car? (or what would you like it to be?) 2003 Holden Commodore. What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Sandwich Maker hands down, with the tuna and cheese toasted sandwich being my go-to.
What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?
The 80s, everyone seemed so happy.
