The multi-talented Jeremy Coney is an anecdotal raconteur extraordinaire. An achiever both academically, in sport, and having worked on radio and television, he certainly has a wide and interesting range of experiences to draw from.
A distinguished sportsman, Jeremy played cricket for New Zealand from 1973 to 1987 and was Captain from 1984 to 1987. Highlights of his sporting career were: defeating Australia (though, he says, without ever giving Max Walker the beatings he deserved); and England (but, as Jeremy points out, who doesn't).
His academic achievements include gaining a BA in Maori, Greek, Roman drama and music at Victoria University. A trained teacher, he spent eight years teaching 12 to 13 year olds, and even lived to talk about it.
Jeremy's love of music and drama were recognised in 1989 when he played the lead role of Dexter Haven in the Australasian premiere of High Society, a hit musical set in the 1950s.
Witty and versatile, Jeremy's tales never fail to entertain.
