Tell us about Sunshine Coast:

I live on the Sunshine Coast, a  growing community of laid back surfers, coffee lovers and night time enthusiasts. The Sunshine Coast is the type of place where everyone knows everyone and you’ll always receive a friendly smile. The coast is home to beautiful beaches, rain forests, rivers and creeks.

A perfect day?

My perfect day would be to wake up to a calm, sunny morning for an early surf and then laze around home in the garden playing with my dog and chilling with my girl.

What is the best thing about Sunshine Coast?

The variety of landscapes and how quickly everything changes. A 20 minute drive from the beach and you’re greeted with lush rain forests or typical Australian bush land.

What is the worst?

The price of fuel.

What would be surprising about Sunshine Coast to an outsider?

How hot it gets in summer.

If Sunshine Coast was a person or character who would it be?

Matthew McConaughey.

Who are three of your favorite artists?

Matthew O’Brien, Bluejuice, and Flight Facilities.
