I not only work a full-time job I also stream 6 hours 6 days a week so streaming is definitely a massive hobby of mine I have been able to turn into a second job. When I am not working I am hanging with the kids going camping, riding motorbikes, driving in the bush, going to the beach.
Why is supporting cancer research important to you?
Cancer hits home with me big time, unfortunately, I lost my pop 12 years ago now to lung Cancer and my Dad just went through bladder Cancer, he is in remission now which is amazing but seeing them go through it I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
