I’ve been in Cairns since 1984. I was born in Den­mark, and my par­ents moved to Ca­bool­ture. I got a job as a boat­ing pa­trol of­fi­cer and moved to Cairns. I love the life­style. It was the fish­ing that at­tracted me as FNQ is prob­a­bly one of the best and most di­verse fish­eries in the world. I did the boat­ing pa­trol thing for about 10 years. When I got my skip­per’s ticket, I left the De­part­ment of Fish­eries and started up my own char­ter busi­ness. I’ve been do­ing that, on and off, ever since. I was able to turn my love of fish­ing and boat­ing into a dream job in 2015, when I was awarded a per­mit to con­duct fish­ing tours on Cop­per­lode Dam. I love it. I’ve got two boys and a lit­tle girl, and I reckon Cairns is a won­der­ful place to raise a fam­ily.
