On the Couch with Amos Gill

Amos Gill AAR On the CouchWho is Amos Gill?
That depends on who you ask!

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Play better in my U18 state football season, to go to the NAB draft. I’m 27 with four ACL surgeries and I still think I might have one good pre-season and go pro…

Who inspires you and why?
Anyone who isn’t living their life ironically. They love what they do and are working hard with whatever skill set they’ve got.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Be less of an asshole day to day. Everyone wants to fix the world. Fix yourself. Also, make sure I use keep cups for coffee.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Vietnam. I like being immersed in places where I don’t understand what anyone is saying or doing. The people are kind and they have good food.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
A hotel.

What are you currently reading?
A very passive aggressive text message from my housemate. Literature wise: Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain.

What are you currently listening to?
My neighbours fighting. My Airbnb sucks. (I like Tame Impala)

Happiness is?
Momentary and as a result of having overcome some form of suffering. Often found at the bottom of a bowl of pasta and a South Australian Red, while watching Tottenham, The Crows or Formula 1.

What does the future hold for you?
Mum went to a tarot card reader and apparently I’m going to do The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
