About Me


Make it back home to Perth, Austraya


Ozzie of English decent, 60 next year but I prefer to think of myself as 3 X 20's. Lived a pretty full life and other people seem to find me an interesting character. Very political with a leaning towards anarcho/socialism, in nearly 60 years never met a government I liked. Had all sorts of jobs, Astrologer, film technician, factory hand, public servant, fruit picker to name a few. Don't have much in the way of material things but I will be able to take a wealth of experience and memories with me when I finally shuffle off this mortal coil.


Very much a fan of Taoism and Lao Tzu. Very much a pacifist but could make an exception for politicians. Not too fussed about money, as long as I've got enough to buy a cold beer on a hot day I'm happy.


Love movies, literature, poetry. I'm a bit of a nerd so love all things technological. Am political and lean towards socialism but find politicians distasteful. Love good food and like to cook. Travel is my greatest love.

Music, Movies, and Books

Hmmmm.....books, in nearly 60 years, a lot, everything from Kafka to Lois Lamour. In my whole life there were only a handful of books I never finished, Twilight is one of them. Music is very eclectic, depends on the place, my mood and how stoned I am but everything from classic rock to punk, particular favorites The Ramones, Floyd, Clash and Eagles of Death Metal, partial to a bit of classical now and again too. Love movies, my favorite subject of study at Uni.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Flying from Perth to Sydney in a single engine, two sweater aeroplane. The New Zealand countryside and meeting the leads singer of Pearl Jam and him arranging for two free tickets for the following days gig. Playing chess with Lemmy from Motorhead just after he started the band around 1975 sometime.
