PEOPLE AROUND TOWN
What is your job? I am currently employed with the Alpine Shire Council.
I am employed as a gardener in Bright but I am currently backfilling the position of Open Spaces Team Leader in Myrtleford.
I am responsible (with my team) for the maintenance of parks, gardens and open space areas in Myrtleford and surrounds
What brought you to this job?
I had started out here in Myrtleford at the golf course as an apprentice but wanted to move back to this area.
I was employed as a green keeper at the Cobram/ Barooga and Tocumal golf clubs.
A job came up at council for a gardener in Bright and I was fortunate enough to secure the position.
I have always had a passion for horticulture and have not looked back since the day I started with council.
What do you love about your job?
I love the variety of work as no two days are the same.
I enjoy being given the opportunity to work in different areas of the Alpine Shire and the people I work with.
But the biggest thing I love about my job is to do maintenance in a park or garden then look back once it is completed to see the difference that I have achieved.
What else do you do in the community?
When I was much younger I played soccer for the Savoys but I am currently not involved in any community organisations.
I have a few small projects happening at home with minor renovations and family that take up most of my time.
