Director of Making Things Better.

Rob won't stop whistling in the office, how do you distract him?
Tell him there is either cycling or soccer on the tv.

What's your coffee/hot drink order?
My coffee order changes weekly. I swap between all the milks and I read recently that potato milk is the next big thing, so that will be me, lined up and ready to try.

Who would you invite to a dinner party?
Tim Minchin for his comedic insights with a musical twist, Tara Brach a yoga teacher who keeps it real, Venus Williams for achieving great sporting things with a chronic illness and Cheryl Strayed, author of the book 'Wild' for her hiking tips.

If you could be a world champion in any sport, what would it be?
Gymnastics. I was a gymnast for about 10 years when I was young, I really loved it until my body just couldn't handle those crazy moves anymore. Gymnasts are so incredibly skilled, fit and waaaaaaay stronger than they look.

What would be your ultimate three course meal?
Oysters fresh from the ocean with a squeeze of lemon for starters , a 'lobster roll' from Supernormal restaurant in Melbourne for entree, anything by food King Yottam Ottolenghi for mains and gooey blue cheese for desert. Whoops, that was four courses. Oh well!
