Nearly a year and a half ago, we flew West-Coast export Jake Quodling up from cold rainy Melbourne to join the team at TBD Design. Right in the peak of summer. Right in the middle of the Cyclone Debbie. Flash forward a year and a bit and he has won the Townsville Men’s Premier AFL grand final, become the TBD table tennis champ, and seen his first colony of bats flying in the nights sky.
We thought it was time to sit down and ask him some hard hitting questions so you can all get an insight in to who this mysterious import is.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
