‘I was born in Bourke NSW, and when I was 14, I left school to work in a shearing shed. When I turned 20, I was called up for national service to serve in Vietnam. Afterwards, I resumed work in the shearing shed, and I went on to participate in Show Shearing and Shearing Demonstrations worldwide, including in Japan, America, and all over Australia. I married my wife Jody in 1999, and we have three wonderful and successful children.’
