About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling across China, Russia and Europe and UK.

ABOUT ME

I work at Caulfield Grammar School in Melbourne. I am married to Diane. We have three daughters who all drive cars and two of whom still live at home. I still go surfing at least once per week. I also enjoy bike riding, gardening and I recently had a go at portrait painting using oils. I enjoy James Bond movies, I like classical music but also bands from the '70's. I play a guitar and used to sing at weddings and restaurants.

PHILOSOPHY

I take a lot from the Christian religion, such as treating others as I would like to be treated and loving my neighbour, but I also see value in Buddhist teachings,such as the Deli Lama's idea that we should aim to be happy by focusing and what produces happiness and getting rid of what doesn't.
