From wood carting on weekends with his grandfather and father, to being the world’s best dishwasher - we take a look at Jono’s childhood memories, important lessons learned in life and quirky habits. 

1.    What are three words to describe you? Logical; Caring; Conscientious.

2.    What is your favourite childhood memory? Wood carting on weekends with my grandfather and father.

3.    What is the best advice you ever received? Make a lifelong commitment to try and be a better person every day.

4.    What was the most important thing you learned in school?  My oldest son Benjamin has just started kindergarten and I am just blown away at how quickly school teaches us important life skills including independence and how to develop relationships.

5.    What is one goal — either personal or professional — that you would like to accomplish during your lifetime?  I would like to catch a wild barramundi from the top end.

6.    What was the last book you read?  Diana Gabaldon, The Fiery Cross. I also find myself reading a chapter or two of Steve Biddulph’s Raising Boys as our two boys grow so fast and continually challenge my parenting skills!  

7.    Do you have a talent, hobby or interest that would surprise people? I consider myself the world’s best dishwasher – I spent 3 years scrubbing pots and pans for a restaurant located over the back fence from my parents’ house (I also believe this qualifies me for an exemption from doing the dishes at home…with limited success)

8.    What is one piece of technology you can’t live without? Dishwasher… and my iPhone. It is my go to device including taking photos that record memories of my kids.

9.    What is one unique or quirky habit that you have? My team have just informed me of a few of my habits, including unrealistic expectations of a clean and organised desk and their desktop icons.

10.   Finish this sentence. Boyce to me is… about caring for others, providing opportunities for regional professionals and having a bit of fun along the way.
