I WAS born in Adelaidein February 1992 and lived there for the first 23 years of my life.

From the young age of eightI found a love for the game of basketball.

I then also took up footballthrough a cross-sport deal with a friend at the age of 13.

He would come join Forestville Eagles Basketball Club if I went and joined Goodwood Saints Football Club.

I managed to balance basketball and football throughout school.

I also began working from the age of 14 at the Glenelg Jetty Hotel, which is where my passion for the hospitality industry was first born.

District basketball and club football eventually lost preference when work started to take over.

I originally started as a ‘glassy’ and movedonto restaurant work.

I becomea restaurant supervisor at age 17.

Once I turned 18 I was working in the bars and also as gaming attendant.

The biggest chapter of my life started with the Hurley Hotel Group.

This group is what brought me to Port Lincoln.

After going through the management ranks in Adelaide and a hotel management course I was after a bigger challenge.

And what is a bigger challenge than moving to a huge venue in a town where you know nobody except your girlfriend (now fiancé)who agreed to come on this fantastic career move with me?

Since I have moved to Port Lincoln I have found a great way to be a part of the local community is not only through work but also local businesses and being involved in sport.

The Port Lincoln Hotel has been a huge contribution to my success in the industry that I love.

Since being here within a fantastic ownership/management group I have been lucky enough to be a part of many awards andnominations on both a personal and business level.

These include winning theAustralianHotel AssociationHotel Industry Rising Star 2015, as well as best bar presentation and service for 2015 both at a state and national level.

Last year I alsowon the Port Lincoln Chamber of CommerceBeyond Bank Business Excellence Award and a Leading Teams Australia High Performance Award.

I was also a nominee and a finalist for the Channel 9 Young Achiever awards.

The town of Port Lincoln has been a tremendous part of my life.

Even though I have lived here for just two years,this amazing town has taught me so much.

These things will forever be a part of my life.

To me, Port Lincolnwill go down as one of, if not the mostbeautifultownin the world.

In fact, one of my favourite things about this town is how no matter what the circumstances, whenever someone or something is in need this whole town will rallyaround them.

Together, we all come out the other side of the challenge.

Whether it be fundraisers or physically helping someone, Port Lincoln sticks together.

Personally, I just want to express my gratitude to everyone I have had the pleasure of meeting my time here so far.

Hopefully I get to meet plenty more great people in time to come.

FAMILY: Kate Alexander, James Alexander, Brent Alexander, Sam Alexander and buba Sophia Nolis, October 2015.

BASKETBALL: Most Valuable Player Shaun Maxfield and runner-up James Alexander.
