What is your favourite theme park ride/attraction?

Rollercoasters of course!

Who inspires you and why?

Luckily a lot of my inspiration comes from the people I get to work with every day, particularly some young strong female leaders in our business.

How did you get into this industry?

I started in coin-op at Timezone when I was studying...and after a stint at Intencity ended up at Galactic Circus - 19 years later I still have the same boss!

Your biggest challenge yet?

Keeping our people connected and aligned, culturally, across four states.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, name 3 people you’d like to share it with?

Living? I'd say Malcolm Gladwell, Tim Minchin and Obama - some interesting people to pass the time with.

Name one thing you can’t live without?

Green tea

Best advice you have been given?

Culture eats strategy for breakfast
