I am a retired businessman who grew up in Sydney and moved to Blackheath in 2000 where I've built two houses as an owner builder, one of which I live in at present and where I will be hosting you. I'm a keen photographer, enjoy bushwalking, gardening, reading, movies and looking at art. I've visited many cities, Instanbul being the most memorable. I appreciate the importance of feeling welcomed as a guest and endeavour to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
