As a writer...

Trying to write about yourself is one of the hardest things to do... Let me write you a novel, for it will just fall from my fingertips, ask me to talk about myself and my fingers curl into balls of clay.

Here is the short version...

I was born in Canberra, number seven of eight children. Our home was always organised chaos, a tight ship run by loving parent. We were not poor but it would be hard to have called us middle class, we never lacked any of the essentials; food, education, a roof over our head and love. I have a lot of fond memories of Canberra, except wearing school shorts in the middle of winter.

We migrated north to Sydney when I was 11ish, by this time it was just me and my younger sister left at home. So it was like growing up in two different families, a large extended rowdy family and then a nuclear and mostly quieter existance throughout my teenage years.

I mostly excelled at school, maths, physics, chemistry were my favourite subjects, english and history my least favourite. I would have become an engineer if I had not fallen into a job in the computer industry right out of school. I loved school and would rather have spent my time in the library over time on a sports. I loved to learn and still do, it's always been a driving force in my life.

My only career has been in IT. 

However, my passions in life have been Travel, Photograhy and Writing.
