What do you enjoy doing while on the road with Monster Truck Promotions Australia? 
I enjoy relaxing with the team when we have finished work for the day. Whether it is at the local for a drink and dinner, or back at the accommodation watching TV. Sometimes you need a break though. When we are on the road we are together 24/7 and sometimes you just need to get away.

What is your greatest memory as a monster truck driver? 
My first indoor event at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.

Do you have any pre-show rituals that you run though? 
No I am usually too busy checking to make sure everything is ready for the show so we have no breakdowns during the show.

If you were not driving Monster Trucks, what career path would you follow? 
I own and operate my own business, Lunatech, where I rebuild transmissions and engines predominantly for off road racing vehicles.
