If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I’d have to say bacon and eggs, as it’s a hot meal you can have at any time of the day. Plus eggs are pretty good for you and bacon is bacon.

What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
I’m not sure if someone told me or I read it somewhere, but ‘comparison is the thief of joy’, meaning if you spend your whole life comparing what you have to the people around you, you’ll never be happy. Reminding myself of this helps me not take things for granted and be proud of where I’m at and what I’ve achieved so far.

If you could have any office pet, what would it be?
It’s a cliché answer but definitely a dog, and not just any dog but Kaiser; my big and loveable Rottweiler. As much as his constant demand for attention would be a distraction, it would be great to have him keeping me company during my work day.

Which store would you max-out a credit card at if given the chance?
I’d happily max out a credit card at the Apple Store, as long as I could go back every year and do it again whenever the latest model iPhone/iPad/iMac/etc. comes out.

What is one thing you want to tick off your bucket list?
If I had to pick one that was realistic to tick off in the next couple of years, it would have to be flying to Townsville to watch an NQ Cowboys game.

What's one piece of advice you would give someone who wants to join the SEO Premier team?
Be prepared to do something you haven’t done before at least once a week. The digital marketing industry is always evolving and we want to be on to new innovations as soon as they become available, which means trying new things and never getting too comfortable.
