Edward swims with sharks. Well, at least once in 2010, and possibly involuntarily, when he was thrown overboard whilst fishing in Broome. We suspect this is what made him the relaxed guy that he is today.

Apart from surviving near certain death, Edward enjoys being sleep deprived due to young offspring, volunteering for ambulance duty with St Johns and driving less than five minutes to work each day (after drawing the short straw of managing our Broome Office). He also runs a small farm in Broome with pet dogs, chickens and snakes.

Edward routinely fishes, camps, dives, spearfishes and generally explores the Kimberley Region of Western Australian in between work.
