Mark Tate

Aquarist/Packer - Cairns

My unofficial nickname is Heymarkcanyoufixthis.

What energises you at work?
Being busy, I don’t like stopping. If I stop, my brain just bounces around telling me all the things that I could be doing instead of staring at the walls…

What’s the biggest misconception people have about you?
That I’m quiet, well I am, but it’s not you it’s me!

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
What I’d like to be doing is reading or spending time with my family, what I’m actually doing is probably housework.

Favourite coral and why?
My favorite coral is fish because of their personalities. Who doesn’t love seeing a flame hawk doing zoomies around your tank every time you walk past the fridge?

What do you love about the job?
I love nature and animals, so I would say having the opportunity to surround myself with both all day.
