Try to make more eye contact. haha!

I would get rid of straws and and all plastic to-go containers.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Barcelona, Spain. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Would be doing a disservice if I didn’t take them to Circular Quay to see the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Endless gorgeous views and it’s just a must see for any tourist. But then I would kick it local style and take them for dinner at Fu Manchu in Darlinghurst.
