I grew up as one of five rugby- playing cricket-mad brothers on a cotton farm on the Darling Downs. My parents were huge newspaper readers and also subscribed to The Bulletin and Time magazines and this love of current affairs and great stories rubbed off on me. I joined The Morning Bulletin as a reporter in 1998 and feasted on the array of fantastic yarns generated by the dynamic Central Queensland community. I became editor in 2006 and I know I have the best job in the world. I am married with three great kids and I sometimes find time to play a few holes of golf at the Capricorn Country Club.
