I was born in Sydney, lived in Gaythorne, Queensland for 5 years, but have recently returned to Sydney, and live in Ettalong Beach, on the centeal coast, with my two Jack Russell Terriers. Gay and severely vision-impaired (there is a connection), I have a perverse sense of humour, and love provoking argument and debate on subjects.
I obtained my Graduate Certificate in Writing from the University of Technology Sydney in 2004. I was a regular contributor to “Talkabout” magazine, a community organisation publication, for 15 years as well as a number of years on the working group for the magazine. I contributed articles, opinion pieces, side bars and regular columns.
I have written regularly for QPP “Alive” in Queensland. Other writings include articles in “Vertigo”, the student newspaper at UTS, submissions to community magazines, and two poems released in overseas compilations.
Though I write regularly regarding health issues for gay and HIV+ men, I am also interested in fitness and health issues in general, Gay history, Australian history, political comment, and I also include stories resulting from my genealogical research into my family.
I do not consider myself a story writer, though have several on the blog. I prefer writing from life eixperience, my researches into many areas of interest or having a gripe about something.
I am a flaneur (Google it), and loved the study of Contemporary Cultures at university, which I find fascinating.
I’m sure you’ll find something interesting here to keep you amused. Enjoy!
