Tell us something interesting about you.

I lived in England for 6 months until I got kicked out for being too Aussie.

I wrote a short movie called “Home Alone 4 Ever” where the little kid gets shot in the first few minutes after squirting intruders with a water pistol. The rest of the short is a 'first person' view of the kid watching the intruders rob the house as it slowly fades to black.

What's your motto?

I have the honour ​of​ writ​ing​ a testimonial for Mash Media and in particular its owner Sharney Ryan. I have been with them for now over 5 years​! And wouldnt consider going anywhere else again.​ The​y are a great team who have a​ genuine interest in helping my practice succeed with Marketing, Adwords and Website​ &​amp; SEO has been superb.Prior to them advising me i had spent significant sums with large organizations, only to find that much of the budget was spent on their overheads and profit before being applied to my business.This company ​truly ​delivers.
