How do you contribute to the education of kids?

Along with my best mate Maddie, we have an awesome TV show on PRIME every Saturday at 9am called The Saturday Club! Each week, we check out fun things and take kids on amazing adventures of discovery exploring areas such as science, books, sports, health and all kinds of cool stuff! We get to meet some really interesting people too!

Please tell us about your family.

When I'm not hanging out in the attic with my best friend Maddie, I live with my mum and dad in a forest near Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast.

What do you do when you're not on PRIME?

I really love sleeping, eating and playing with my friends.

What did you have to do to get your job with PRIME?

I was discovered at a shopping centre! I went from an unknown marsupial to an overnight megastar when I became the host of my very own television show in 1993.

What are your career highlights?

Being PRIME's mascot is so much fun, I get to meet so many awesome kids!
One of the coolest things I have done was when I got to be a trainee lifeguard as a part of the Newcastle City Council Community Water Safety Education Program.

We went to heaps of schools to educate children on the importance of water safety, it was a blast!

What do you value most in life?

That's easy - my friends and family.

What is your most unforgettable personal experience?

I get to do so many great things with Maddie on The Saturday Club, but swimming with dolphins in Coffs Harbour was unforgettable.

What is your favourite Australian destination and why?

I love exploring! Travelling is sooooo cool. I've got up close and personal with sharks at Seaworld on the Gold Coast, learnt how to play soccer with the Newcastle Jets, hit the ski slopes at the Snowy Mountains and travelled back in time at Sovereign Hill in Victoria. I can't wait for my next trip!

What is your best overseas experience?

I haven't been overseas yet but I'm really keen to get out there and see the world! Maddie tells me that I would love France, so I think I would like to make that my first stop.

Please tell us more about The Saturday Club on PRIME.

Maddie and I have so much fun putting The Saturday Club together! Most of our time is spent hanging out in attic making each other laugh. There is always heaps of exciting guests dropping by for chats, plus we have great movies for everyone to watch, DVD and book reviews, jokes, competitions and awesome prizes! You can hang out with Maddie and I every Saturday from 9am on PRIME.
