How would you describe your on-camera style?
Ron Burgundy meets James Bond – if classy looks could kill!
Has your style changed since you started in Broadcast?
Most definitely – from slapping on whatever was clean at the last minute, to now having an array of dry-cleaned shirts and ties hanging in the sports department to choose from and have ready when news breaks.
Do you follow any fashion rules?
Sun’s out, guns out – wingsback!
What’s your fashion mantra?
Never underestimate the power of a good suit.
Whose celebrity style do you admire?
Leonardo Dicaprio, Bradley Cooper and Becks.
Any past fashion faux pas?
Short sleeve button-up shirts – never again.
Your most indulgent fashion purchase?
Spring Racing tailored suit with shirt/tie combo, or my new RM’s – can’t beat a good pair of RM’s.
Your best budget buy?
$10 pair of chinos at a Bondi street sale.
What fashion trend will you never try?
Baggy jeans – seriously lads it doesn’t look good, it’s all about a fitted look!
Your favourite Brisbane men’s store?
Yet to really discover the boutique stores around Bris Vegas, but if you’re out there and reading this - hit me up!
Your favourite clothing store outside of Brisbane (or online)?
I wear Rhodes and Beckett, and M.J Bale suits, shirts and ties – love the look and fit.
What do you think is the most important thing for women when it comes to style?
Love your body first – everything else will follow.
Do you prefer…
Boxers or briefs? Briefs – Bonds undies all the way.
Smart suits or cool casual? Smart suits.
Short back and sides or a little scruffy? When I can’t be bothered/weekend I scruff it up – all other times it’s short back and sides.
Where can we find you...
On a Sunday morning?At work reading the back page of the paper and sipping on a coffee – joys of being a sports journo.
On a Saturday night? At home on the couch watching sport – again joys of being a sports journo.
On your next holiday? The UK and southern France – Wimbledon and Le Tour here I come.
