Brushes with fame? Not many. But all notable nonetheless.

Peter-GarrettI met Peter Garrett in a work context. Twice. Jackie-OJackie O called me once.
Craig-JohnstonI have a photo of me in my Liverpool strip with Craig Johnston at his wedding. I even appeared on the local NBN news. John Howard

I saw John Howard walk into OPSM in Manuka. I also have another story, for another time.

Bill Bovill and Miss ConnieI had a photo taken with Miss Connie from Sneaky Sound System. Robbie-WilliamsI think Robbie Williams look at me during a Sydney concert, but I’m not sure.
Ken WarbyAs a kid, I met Ken Warby (currently holds the Water speed record) and I still have his autograph somewhere. Simon Townsend Wonder WorldI won a prize on Simon Townsend’s Wonder World in the Today’s Poet segment. I didn’t actually meet him, but he did show a photo of me sitting on a shark (not a real one).
