As a Transit Officer, what are the best things about your job?
I like that I get to work on the Armadale line where I get to interact with many different types of people. We have a large population of youth that ride our trains and I like having the opportunity to hopefully have an impact on their lives in a positive way. I’ve been a Transit Officer for over 9 years and in that time I’ve had the opportunity to see lots of the youth grow up around me. I like it when a child I may have dealt with on the trains years earlier comes to me as a young adult and tells me about their lives and how they have changed and to see how proud they are to be able to say things like I’m studying or I have a job.

What one word would you use to describe yourself?
Understanding. I myself was born and bred in Armadale. This allows me to understand where some of the youth we deal with have come from or what they may be going through.

Describe the most interesting experience you have ever had.
This is a hard one because being a Transit Officer has given me so many memorable experiences. But thinking outside of work I’d have to say driving around Australia. Getting to see the Nullarbor and all the amazing little towns on the way and meeting all different types of people. I love to travel and have done basically all of Australia as well as other countries. I am always planning my next journey somewhere.

What is one thing about you few people know?
I want to start Muay Thai. I’m currently training 4/5 times a week and eating super healthy in an attempt to get fit enough and hopefully one day have a proper Muay Thai fight. Stay tuned….

What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
My Kids. I have a 5 year old and a 1 year old and I love spending time with them when I’m not at work. And secondly I really enjoy exercising. At the moment I am exercising as often as possible so I can start Muay Thai. This being said, the kids tag along so it’s kind of a family affair.

Ask me about...
Anything, I love to talk. I can talk to you about anything to do with any sport, music, Muay Thai, cars or basically anything.
