In our 5 Minutes with Zane we get to find out what life is like for him and his wife with twin girls on the Gold Coast.
Zane who is your family made up of?
My wife Kai, our twin daughters Navah & Eden 3yrs and our Labrador pup Inca
What is a typical day with your family like?
Up early at 5am with the girls, sometimes I fit in exercise before breakfast together then off to work at 7.30am. I’m usually home about 5pm for dinner as a family before we put the girls to bed around 7pm.
Who is one person in your life you are thankful for and why?
It’s not one person but two. My parents gave me a wonderful life and have taught me great values which I now try to instill in my daughters.
Where do you live and if we were to visit you what would you show us?
We live on acreage in Currumbin Valley and I would show you our peaceful surroundings, our space and our view. We love it!
What is your greatest talent or ability?
The ability to focus. I think I learned this as an athlete having to focus intensely on what I had to do in the moment. Sometimes it’s not always positive though as I tend focus too much on things that aren’t necessarily important now.
If you had the attention of the world for just 10 seconds, what would you say?
Let’s get rid of the internet & technology! It has created more evil than good. Let’s go back to the basics of reality and focus on living and breathing in the now, living healthy lifestyles and enjoying the moment. Talking to each other & being happy with what we have.
If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?
