Favourite TV show and why?
Seinfeld, because it never gets old, not matter how many times you see it.

Favourite Movie and why?
Superbad or Step Brothers. They both have me in stitches every time.

You moved from a role with Deloitte to working with our great partners at 4 Pines a few years ago. It was a big move but one that looks to be paying off. What are the advantages of working with a growing business like 4 Pines?
It definitely was a big change going from a multinational professional services firm to an independent, family-owned craft brewery. I've taken on a lot more responsibility in a hands on role, and it's great to be able to help the business grow in a booming category. It makes turning up to work easy when you know there's always new and exciting stuff going on, whether it be on the hospitality or wholesale side of things.

You completed a season in England in our off-season, a pilgrimage made by many a cricketer. Who did you play with and how did you enjoy your time over there?
Had an absolute ball in England, playing for a club in North London called Totteridge Millhillians CC. We were in the Hertfordshire league, and had some quality guys at our club like ex English Captain John Embruey, Monty Panesar (formerly Campbeltown Camden CC), and the great Steve Selwood. Also, by complete fluke, ended up playing in the same team as Brad Wilson over there, which put a bit of a dampener on things.

What travelling did you manage to fit in during your time in the UK?
I went on a solo snowboarding trip to the Swiss/French Alps on my way over, then finished the trip with Sweden, Denmark, Edinburgh, Bordeaux, Amsterdam and Berlin. It was an epic end to the trip.

You have been on the committee for a number of years now and are providing a huge amount of value to the club, a lot of which goes unseen. How have you enjoyed your time on the committee?
It's definitely a privilege to to be on a committee with a group of such knowledgeable and hard-working blokes. I feel like the business acumen amongst the lads is second to none, and I've learnt a great deal of skills that will definitely be beneficial in future endeavours. It's also just enjoyable trying to follow in Maso's footsteps.

Funniest moment on the cricket field?
Matt Cranney (3s keeper about 5 years ago) bowling an over at Grahams. First ball was right-arm med, second was left-arm orthodox, third was right-arm Murali, fourth was left-arm Chinaman. He finished the game off with figures of 2-0.

Funniest moment off the cricket field?
Any time spent around the great Billy D'Arcy or Sam Alexander. Some of the moments on the hill last year were quite memorable.

Who is the best cricketer that you have played with?
Wasim Akram.

How would you go about impressing the girls of your dreams?
Taking her on a night in the corso with the Manly boys. Start at In Situ, then to the Steyne, and end up at the Boaty.

Who at Manly would you most like to share a car trip to Campbelltown with?
Don Sellin. Really enjoy his stories.

Who at Manly would you least like to share a car trip to Campbelltown with?
Brad Wilson. Unfortunately landed at the same club as him in England, and really not looking forward to his chat for another 6 months.

What are your goals for the coming season?
Get a matching tattoo with Nick McLachlan.

What do you think the club needs to improve on for the 2016/17 season?
Put in a bit more commitment across the board.

What is your most embarrassing moment on the field?
Getting taken for 24 off an over by Kurtis Patterson.

Who is your tip for the D.G. Medal this season for their work on the circuit?
Sam Gainsford. He's got a love-hate relationship with bourbon, and is one of the funniest/loosest blokes going around.

Who's Manly Cricket shoes, either past or present, would you like to be in for a day?
Joel Mason. He's just so in control of all situations. Whether it be cricket, women, administration, circuiting, he's just an all-round superstar.

Who were the best cricketers coming through the age groups with you?
Our age group wasn't much chop at Manly. But played with a lot of guns going through the ranks, such as Maddinson, Zampa, Hazlewood and Kurtis Pattinson.

What is your favourite delicacy at Plateau Fine Quality Meats?
Our go-to is their fillet steak. It just melts in your mouth, and is delicious in a pepper sauce. I've recently discovered there Bungalow Pork as well, which mum cooks up with a luscious apple and rosemary sauce as well.
