What do you love most about your job?

I kick the footy around with my mates everyday, so it’s pretty awesome!

How would you describe your style?

Urban Surf Ghetto.

Do you follow any fashion rules?

Red and green should never be seen, so I stay away from green.

What’s your fashion mantra?

“Never take life advice from someone with bad style.”

Whose celebrity style do you admire?

I like how outrageous some of the NBA boys dress for their games and post game press conferences like Kevin Durrant and James Harden. Something I should try to bring in.

Your best budget buy?

A tin of Uppercut Deluxe. That stuff will have you looking like Leonardo DiCaprio in no time.



Your favourite Brisbane men’s store?

Michael Innis, West End, for suits. Glue, Carindale, and Fuel, Oxford Street, for casual.

Your favourite online clothing stores?

Afends, Deus and The Critical Slide Society.

What do you think is the most important thing for women when it comes to style?

What ever my wife does, she gets it right.

Do you prefer…

Boxers or briefs? Boxers to bed, briefs for the rest. Smart suits or cool casual? Casual. Short back and sides or a little scruffy? Short back and slick using Uppercut Deluxe Pomade.

Where can we find you…

On a Sunday morning? Recovery surf down at Currumbin Alley. On a Saturday night? Brunswick Social followed by a music gig if I'm not playing footy. On your next holiday? Japan.
