"I fell in love with the Gold Coast at 10 years of age. My father died in the Second World War and having moved to Brisbane from the Central West, my family became a Ward of Legacy, who had accommodation in Nerang St, Southport. I loved the Broadwater and even more, the surfing beaches."
"At 17 years old, I joined Tallebudgera Surf Club, ultimately becoming President and having finished my Engineering Diploma, moved to the Gold Coast and became Burleigh Heads Beach Inspector. I played football for the Bears and eventually for the Gold Coast."
