What is your background?
I was born in Brisbane and moved to Bundaberg at an early age. I have a twin sister and we started primary school in a very small township in Rosedale, Bundaberg. We spent much of our childhood on a small crop farm until returning to Brisbane for the remainder of our schooling. I met my partner in Brisbane, upon moving to Victoria for several years on the south coast before moving to his home town of Ballina almost 4 years ago. I have a 17 year old daughter along with two young boys aged 1 and 3.
