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