The Shafston Hotel

I'm a twenty-something moron with an obsessive love of craft beer and a voice that's much too loud, but all those qualities put me in good stead to be a host! On the side I’m also completing a master’s degree at the University of Queensland, but really it’s trivia that’s my one true love.

What is your favourite movie of all time?

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (23 viewings and counting)

Why do you host trivia?

It's the perfect job for an introverted extrovert - you're on the mic, you banter with punters, but you're not *the* show, you're just a conduit.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Coal-roasted porcupine and ostrich. I'm vegetarian now.

What’s your favourite fact?

We don't really know how paracetamol works!

What three celebrities, living or dead, would you want on your trivia team?

Dave Le'aupepe from Gang of Youths for music, author John Green for literature and history, and scientist Katherine Johnson for, y'know, science.
