Bill grew up around the beaches of Sydney's Bondi and Bronte and has always loved anything to do with the outdoors. After completing his HSC he pursued a career in restaurants because they seemed to be great places for his creative output. After travelling around Italy and then living in London for two years he became a self confessed 'foodie' and arrived back in Sydney with a voracious desire to cook good food and eat! He is currently completing a Bachelor of Arts Degree at the Charles Darwin University. His second great love in life is AFL. He plays footy in Darwin and is a massive fan of the Sydney Swans.
I am Australia's Best BBQ'er because: “Being outside with a handful of mates is right up my alley, and having an audience - albeit a pissed one is loads of fun to entertain. To me the essence of BBQ's is to get together with friends, get happy and positive and celebrate being above ground. I reckon I am Australia's best BBQ'er because I have always loved, and known how to throw, a good shin-dig - as in what to cook, what tunes to play, who to invite and so on. I revel in the pursuit of good living and you can’t beat good food, good music, good people, and lots of booze!”
