"Never underestimate the power of a good suit."

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.
