Born and bred in Sydney Australia
Fiddled about with lots of stuff, probably the most satisfying was my [early] mid-life retraining into Landscape Design where I finally discovered that I could study and get good passes. Moved into some fun years of my own design business doing Landscapes and Graphics and in the midst discovered the joy of making stupid little boxes do what you wanted them to [aka programming].
Just before the turn of the Century I took my family up to the wilds of Papua New Guinea
for two years volunteer work, which was both exciting and scary but all say was one of the best things we've ever done!
Currently I'm one of the minority living and working
(not in the IT section that does the website
) within one of the most gorgeous places on earth
