Other Interests

In the past Paul was a squash tragic, but with age and injuries (ruptured ACL) he is now a bystander.  Despite this he thoroughly enjoys viewing most sporting events, especially those his son is playing in (local cricket and AFL) as well as following his, not so successful, St Kilda Saints AFL team.  Paul is still hoping to be at a St Kilda AFL Grand Final when they are victorious – it’s on the bucket list.
