As Air Crew, I am responsible for working with the pilot and my fellow Air Crew or Rescue Crew to conduct scheduled surveillance patrols looking for and taking action in response to different types of coastal hazards. I am responsible for safely dispatching rescue equipment or a Rescue Crew from the helicopter in response to an incident. I am also involved in ensuring we are “rescue ready” at all times in the event of tasking.
I primarily work on the Metro Service.
Favourite WA Beach?
Favourite holiday destination and why?
Sweden – Amazing people, food and fantastic snowboarding.
What inspired you to join the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service?
I want to make a positive impact on the local WA community. It’s always been a life long ambition to fly as part of a helicopter crew.
What motivates you to work for the service and help the community?
I’ve spent so much time at the beach in my youth and through adulthood, I wanted to give support in the provision of beach services. Supporting to prevent incidents and give back to the beach that has given me and my family so much.
What’s your hidden talent?
Prior to getting older, I would have said my ability to eat a lot without gaining weight. These days I do love a good dad joke.
Do you have any aspirations in aviation?
I thoroughly enjoyed my time last year with the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter service, I’m just looking forward to the season and seeing what the future holds.
If you were stranded on an island what three things would you bring with you?
My Spotify playlist (country), my NRL subscription so I can watch all the games and Johnathan Thurston as his laugh and personality would be great morale.
