Being a Pommie I made the move to Australia back in the early 90's. Having a desire to live in the countryside and be surrounded by mountainous views and forest. Exploring and discovering is the chillout part of my daily life.
I have a strong technical and creative aptitude, mixing my worklife as an Aussie Home Energy Consultant with artistic creation. I love the outdoors, wildlife, world music and importantly the peace, tranquility and solitude of where I live here at 'Cockatoos Calling'.
Such a great place, where importantly I love the chance to share all of this, with good company and maybe new friends, whilst having a good laugh. I look forward to meeting you :)
