Elliot has lived in the Hunter region all his life. Recently married, he lives in East Maitland with his wife Karyn and dog Costello. Elliot and Karyn spend their weekends renovating their home and love travelling both overseas and in Australia when they get the chance.
Elliot enjoys bike riding in his spare time. In 2009 he cycled around Tasmania with some of his friends. The cycling expedition took over 30 days and allowed Elliot to take in a lot of Tasmania’s breath taking scenery and conquer some of its biggest hills. Often at the end of a day’s hard ride Elliot was able to relax and unwind by indulging in some of the ales offered at local pubs. On one particular day Elliot cycled over 100 kms on a corrugated dirt road with a broken seat until he reached the next town.
A supporter of the Collingwood Magpies Elliot enjoys visiting Melbourne to watch them play.
Elliot missed his calling as an astronaut but would like to travel to the moon on Virgin Galactic for a holiday one day.
